Workshop description - Opening ourselves to challenges
Learn how to stop avoiding and start living and learning intentionally. In this workshop, we will explore the costs of avoidance- on our academic and personal life- and focus on effective ways that we can confront challenges. We will introduce the idea of acceptance and talk about ways to make space for uncomfortable experiences, so we can still live fully, no matter what life throws at us.
