We live in the transitioning times. Circumstances–chosen or forced–require us to develop modes of living that are simultaneously adaptive, expansive, reverent, and joyful. To do this necessitates preparation, a careful attunement to dynamics otherwise obscured by grossly accumulative practices. In this workshop, through an attention to the deeper times that are intertwined with our daily lives, we will take some small steps that attempt a perturbation of our lives, that will ultimately help prepare us to become tranxxeno.
