Integrating Your Past, Present, Future: Part 1

Friday, June 19, 2020 at 9:35 AM–10:55 AM Pacific Time (US & Canada)
6 - Sierra 6
Workshop Description

This interactive, engaging, and experientially based workshop gives participants the framework and practice for creating their own comprehensive self-reflective practice. The presenters have developed this process over many years working with different communities and individuals to integrate personal change into their lives. As part of our own personal and professional work navigating gender identity, we have developed a framework that gently introduces ritual and practice into life. We incorporate our therapeutic experiences along with our personal learning and stories. The facilitated discussions based on the activities will be informative and energizing and leave you wanting more!
