Do you know what it feels like to be frozen in frustration? To be frozen in sadness, disbelief or anger and say nothing? Feeling all the big feelings in a situation or conversation but unable to find the words... until, of course, you’re alone ,and all of the words find their way back.
It's 2020 and an election year; it’s very possible that you've also found yourself at a loss for words or thinking, "Damn I wish I'd said that!" Same friend, same. So we asked Ms. Danielle to return for another Still Kickin session called Scripted. It's all about finding the ways to say the hard things when we don't have the words, and being prepared for discomfort so that we aren't frozen in it.
This session will give space to provide — and create — the language that often goes missing in those frustrated, outraged, sad or oppressive moments.
IMPORTANT: After you complete payment, you'll be redirected to a sign-up page. Make sure you complete the Zoom registration before the session begins so you don't miss anything!
