Through a series of exercises and discussions we will work to uncover who we are at our core - what we value, who we want to be and how we want to live our life - and explore ways to move past fear, cultural pressures and societal norms in order to live a life more in line with this and discover ways we can invite others to get to know us on this more intimate level through our communication styles.
Throughout our lives, experiences and culture shape our views, attitudes and norms...
