"Red Square Practice" with Barbara Dilley, Professor, Contemporary Performance
Inviting space to tell us what to do, we'll enter the Square, open our perceptions, then meet "this very moment which is always the occasion". Deep Play among the ensemble begins.

Explore a new paradigm in performance training based on new somatic techniques, contemplative practice and view, and world theater and dance forms.
"Peace Studies Digital Storytelling Project" with Candace Walworth, Associate Professor, Peace Studies
In this experiential workshop, we will view digital stories created in an undergraduate Peace Studies course at Naropa, explore the co-arising of storytelling and community-building, and generate "seed ideas" for our own 40th Anniversary digital stories.
"Contemplative Psychotherapy: Genuine Exchange" with Karen Kissel-Wegela, Professor, Contemplative Psychotherapy
The ground of Contemplative Psychotherapy is the genuine relationship between therapist and client. In this workshop we will explore the implications of this idea for counseling and psychotherapy. The session will include both discussion and experiential components.
