JOIN US TO RADICALLY IMAGINE THE FUTURE OF PALESTINE
Workshop: Disconnect to Reconnect (Meditation and Yoga session!)
We all went through a challenging time being in lockdown for so long as a global family. We experienced a lot of pressure, fear, stress and uncertainty in the past months due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In our workshop we will learn some tools to release stress and tension from the body using breathing techniques, mindful movement and guided imagery to reconnect to ourselves and find our inner calmness.
