How we "identify" has become a critical topic of discussion in our everyday life experience. Pushing through the crowd in regard to how we wish to be seen and heard is imperative to our well-being. The concept of our identity is not black and white. It is complex, dynamic and multi-dimensional. We, as individuals, are the only ones that can determine and express identity for ourselves.
This two-part workshop will provide participants with a safe and brave space to discuss the intersections that influence how we experience our world, connect to others and create a personalized sense of self.
