Present moment self-awareness is key in recognising when we are not operating from our core self. In this workshop, we will be exploring ways to develop more in the moment self-awareness, how we know we are in some kind of reactive pattern, and how we can transform these kinds of patterns. We’ll focus on the importance of doing our own inner healing work for staying calm, connected, and energised in an education setting.
