Before and After; the Vulnerability of being Naked

Firstly I would like to thank you both for hosting such a splendid evening. Well done indeed and please sign me in for the next one!

It was great to be part of such an event. Everyone was so nice and I was very surprised how quickly the nerves dissappeared.

I was also surprised at how quickly we became a ‘community’ working together in genuine friendship and completely relaxed at being naked together. I am not sure this feeling of well being could have been achieved clothed. It was as if the vulnerability of being naked created an invisible bond between us. Really refreshing.

The artists output was also rather special and I look forward to seing the results on the web in due course.

No none at all.

  1. Why do you want to participate in Spirited Bodies?

I would like to contribute to the festival event and to experience an opportunity to work with others to celebrate the real people we are. I also believe in the empowerment of women and hope that we all take away positive reflections from the evening.

No none at all although I do try to keep reasonably fit and exercise most mornings.

No not at all. I am happy to interact as appropriate.
