I may have told you before that I was in London recently, attending a workshop by the famous Elizabeth Gilbert (she wrote Eat, Pray, Love).

And after that workshop I flew on to Dallas to meet my wonderful friend Laura, who I knew had attended on of Elizabeth Gilbert’s workshops, this one however with the equally famous Martha Beck.

So Laura told me that Martha made the whole room bend spoons.

And I was like: what???

So Laura showed me.
And I tried.
And I couldn’t.
And I sat with it.
And the next morning I bend the spoon.
And when I got home I got my kids to bend spoons too.

It was such an experience, so simple and pure and effortless that I wanted to share it with you.
This technique was introduced at a past Women, Wine and Wisdom evening .
