Event Description: This workshop invites you to engage in a transformative exploration of the deeper purpose of learning. We will use methods in The Art of Hosting and Social Presencing Theater to explore these questions: What does it mean to recover wholeness through education and what are the best ways to do that? How can academic education better support students to deal with current challenges? Our purpose is to create spaces and opportunities for engaging the heart (emotions), the body (sensing) and our relational capacities (connection) in the learning process. One upcoming opportunity is a monthly community of practice for well-being, resilience and connection that you are welcome to join from January.   
About the Activating the Heart in Higher Education Series 
We believe the purpose of education is to nurture our wholeness and help us understand the complexity of the world. This project is an invitation to integrate cognitive intelligence that defines the academia, with the intelligences of the heart, body and will. Our intention is to create transformative learning experiences that activate our hearts to the experience of wholeness and the healing of painful divisions inherent in our social systems. 

This project is funded by the Relance Project of Saint Paul University. 
This series is hosted by Providence Institute for Transformative Leadership and is intended for the Saint Paul University community and the wider community.
