Coming Home To Where We Are: The Practice of Place in An Age of Consequences

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Building on stories from Kurt's book The Circumference of Home, this experiential session will explore how a “practice of place” can revivify our lives, and enhance our resilience as agents of healing in an age of consequences.
