How does we find balance in an imbalanced world? How do we find authentic meaning amidst the paradoxes of this time? How do we ground ourselves in our deepest ecological ways of being and from that place influence society in a positive way?
Join artists and earth educators Kelly Terbasket and Kim Haxton to explore some of the toughest questions we face as leaders.
This workshop is intended for activists, leaders, educators, changemakers and anyone interested in equipping themselves with the right tools, understanding, and community skills necessary to walk through this challenging time in a good way.
