Participants can cultivate personal embodied presence through guided practices that include mindfulness, movement and reflection. Pratices presented will lead to fresh insights, an ability to prototype creative ways of moving forward, and the courage to extend kindness and compassion to the systems and communities we care so deeply about. We can all engage in “true moves” that express this care.
