Why Slowing Down Matters
07/19/2016 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm| FREE
In this Evening of Exploration, facilitated by Patty Nagle and Lisa Faithorn, we will explore how we can benefit from slowing down. So much competes for our attention these days that it’s easy to skate on the surface, going from one thing to another to another. We miss out on the richness in everyday life. What can we learn about ourselves if we stop and taste the moment? Patty Nagle, director of programs, collaborates with Aaron Stern to guide the design, facilitation, and operation of Academy programs to ensure their alignment with the organization’s mission and pedagogy. Lisa Faithorn is a research anthropologist, organizational consultant and educator. Her work with groups in the US and abroad focuses on individual and organizational transformation, collaborative problem solving and effective team dynamics. As a member of the Academy faculty, she co-facilitates programs for teachers in the Institute for Teaching and community workshops.
