Post-Fest Integration: Part One

It’s tempting to rush towards the learning.

“The body experiences first, then ‘the mind’ interprets. When we pause and attend to our sensations, being deeply rooted and centered in our lower bodies, connected with The Earth, we grow our capacity to respond before our reactions hijack our behaviors. This rebuilds trust between our bodies and all of our self.” ~ Dare Sohei, Beloved Presenter

As we heard at the festival, the body is where the learning always begins.

Village-making takes all of one’s energy; it demands your undivided attention.

Even awesome experiences can be exhausting, right?

We asked you on Instagram what your best post-fest practices were, so here they are:
