The Art of Skillful Social Interactions
So much of social interaction and relationship building has to do with energy. Most of us learn our social interaction skills through mimicking adults around us as children, and through unconscious trial and error. But like most things in life, when you learn new tools, and have the opportunity to consciously practice, you will become infinitely more skillful. This workshop involves theory, practice and a safe space to discuss old patterns and feelings as they arise.

In this incredibly secluded environment you will have an opportunity to connect so deeply with yourself and your place in the natural cycle. You will return with real life skills, and detoxification of body mind and spirit, and a deep appreciation for the simple acts of living well.
