Featured Speaker: Beth Sarver ” Principles of Interpersonal Neurobiology”
Community Moment: Dennis Fehr (from Houston Oasis)
Musical Guest:TBD

There is this aspect of our human nature that we don’t often speak of and in our silence we miss the opportunities to create with intention, grace and deepening connection. While we all have brains and relationships, we are rarely given a common language to more skillfully name our experiences of mind and perception. How do we affect each other? How do we grow together? What is the embodied practice of community learning?

Join us for an InterPlay experience after the talk: https://www.facebook.com/events/168762783465555/
This will give you the opportunity to immediately practice the principles delivered in the main talk.
