Embodying community in everyday life

Embodying community in everyday life

At the heart of Embodying community is the interaction between the “I” and the “we’”. The interplay between the collaborative spaces and the need to separate in order to re-connect. The questions which we explore together are ‘How do we work with a “we” mindset while also celebrating our own individual integrity?’ and  ‘How does the ‘I’ and the ‘we’ exist within each other?’ And from this place of inquiry, how can we live and BE community each moment and everyday?

This one day taster workshop which will include:

  • An experiential learning space, which will include movement and expressive arts
  • A mix of self-inquiry activities
  • Tools for how to feel more community minded in my day to day life

This is for you if you want to learn:

  • Various tools which support a deeper understanding of the sense of I and We
  • Clearer understanding of the needs and values that community bring to my life
  • Tools that help us cultivate a stronger ‘we’ mindset and an ability to collaborate
  • How Nature can teach us about collaborative systems
