9:00 AM – 1:00 PM (Both Days)
Location: WeWork Union Station – 1550 WeWatta Street, Denver, CO 80202
Please join Chapter Be for a two-day, 8 hour workshop that will examine how you can navigate life’s challenges and changes by keeping your BEing at the center of all you do. Helping you better answer – How do you want to BE in the world?
We will start each day by diving into some mindfulness meditation with Melissa Markle and then will use empathy building activities and a design thinking methodology to help you process through a challenge that you are currently facing. It can be anything from a work challenge to a change you are trying to make in your life.
Please, bring the challenge with you, as well as an openness to dive into exploring this challenge/change further!
Spring is the perfect time to be exploring changes, new beginnings and a fresh perspective! It will be a great time and space for you to invest in yourself as well as build your community.
Workshop Cost: $145
