Community & Neighborhood Workshops (All Ages)
Our community workshop can vary from 1-3 days and focuses on a multigenerational approach for geographic or place based community members to tell their stories of resilience and build trusting relationships. Space permitting our team will support you in building a community garden called a Satori Space during the workshop.
Satori is a Japanese Buddhist term for awakening and understanding a person’s true nature. This project was started as a place for communities to have a place of respite from their everyday stressors. Our goal is for individuals to either meditate by themselves or have meaningful dialogue with others. We have consciously built gardens next to police stations, fire stations, hospitals, and transitional housing facilities to create a greater sense of unity among all community members.
Fit for organizations such as local non-profits, hospitals, spiritual centers, fire stations, police stations, libraries, and community centers.
