Workshop: To touch and to be touched

In addition to my paper presentation I also gave a short (60 min) workshop at the EcoJustice and Activism conference.

To touch and to be touched – sensory explorations out in the nature
This workshop is for everyone! In this workshop we will communicate without words. The workshop provides its participants a moment to experience the state of conscious presence through various tasks and the phenomenological concept of lived body opens up in a more concrete way. We will do some body awareness exercises and sensory tasks and we will also explore our connection to the other people and our surroundings.
