“... everyone who comes into contact with a child is a teacher who incessantly describes the world to him, until the moment when the child is capable of perceiving the world as it is described. According to Don Juan, we have no memory of that portentous moment, simply because none of us could possibly have had any point of reference to compare it to anything else. From that moment on, however, the child is a member. He knows the description of the world; and his membership becomes full fledged, I suppose, when he is capable of making all the proper perceptual interpretations which, by conforming to that description, validate it ...”

Sweet Clarity


SweetClarity is a phrase coined by Shahar & myself early in our collaboration.

Shahar is a performer of improvised/spontaneous art. His work and teaching is rooted in body work. When I first experienced Shahar I experienced relief. I was relived because for the first time (and many since) I was moved and touched by art. Until then my experience of art had been a mediocre one. I could identify a certain degree of esthetics and skill in art (of all kinds) but I was never moved. this led me to believe that I was ignorant – and therefor uncapable of appreciating art. With Shahar I was (and still am) clearly moved. Moved in such a way that I did not have and was not interested in describing my experience in words.


 Sweet was the word Shahar offered when I tried (and failed) to describe my experience (which goes way beyond feeling) of the power invoked during one of our early work sessions. The word was right on the spot, I felt it contained and matched my experience perfectly. In one our later conversations – I don’t remember the exact context – we were discussing the personal qualities I was experiencing when I was in the “Sweet” experience. That’s when the world “Clarity” was added.

I feel that the “Sweet” experience brings me in touch with an inner place – an anchor that is not connected to the outside world but to something else deep inside. Experiencing the world from this place gives me a sense of clarity. It is as if I know my place in existence, I recognize the path I am on and I have the firmest resolve to softly walk my path. I find this sense of clarity to be very comforting, supporting and pleasant. I treasure this experience and it is that which has guided me in the recent chapter of my life.


My work (in the diverse fields in which I am active) is focused on trying to share this experience with others. enjoying as they experience it in their life and hopefully watching them continuing their work by sharing it with others. Inspiration is the primary means of transmission of SweetClarity. I feel that SweetClarity plays a crucial role in evolution.
