Join this interactive workshop and explore tangible ways to take advantage of teachable moments and bring learning to life with engaging participant-centered reflection techniques for all ages. Enliven the traditional sharing circle with active, brain-based methods including movement, metaphor, art, and interactive dialogue to increase emotional connection, relevancy, and depth of understanding.
