Welcome is Healing: Re-thinking Immigration | La Bienvenida es Sanativa: re-pensar la inmigración

September 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Event Price: Free

In this interactive workshop, participants will explore the idea of “welcome” in our lives, and how it benefits us to keep our minds and hearts open to new people and experiences.  We will look at the diverse meanings of “welcome” and how we can welcome into our lives the people, situations and things that heal and calm us, as time for rest and reflection becomes increasingly elusive in a fast-paced society. Participants will be given tools based in theater, creative movement, writing and voice, to welcome more peace, and new people and experiences into their lives. Participants are encouraged to wear loose, comfortable clothing, soft soled shoes and be prepared to move and have fun!

En este taller interactivo, los participantes explorarán la idea de “bienvenida” en nuestras vidas, y cómo nos beneficia mantener nuestras mentes y corazones abiertos a nuevas personas y experiencias.  Miraremos los diversos significados de “bienvenida” y cómo podemos acoger en nuestras vidas a las personas, situaciones y cosas que nos sanan y calman, ya que el tiempo para el descanso y la reflexión se vuelve cada vez más esquivo en una sociedad trepidante. A los participantes se les darán herramientas basadas en el teatro, el movimiento creativo, la escritura y la voz, para dar la bienvenida a más paz, y nuevas personas y experiencias en sus vidas. Los participantes están invitados a llevar ropa desahogada, cómoda, zapatos de suela blanda y estar preparados para moverse y divertirse!

This event is free and open to the public.
