Event description
AFF Austin presents a workshop in civil discourse and nonviolent communication - just in time for the holidays! Mingle • Workshop • Relax

About this Event

Technology has given us innumerable ways to talk to each other, and yet we fail to communicate.  Ideologies have pitted us against one another and we are flailing in a world of Us vs. Them.  We are more similar than we are different.  When we learn to listen, we learn to hear. 

Join AFF Austin at one of the most unique, underground, hidden gem venues in the city for a Civil Discourse Workshop. Our venue, Indra's Awarehouse, is fostering community, culture, and art through their eclectic Eastside collaboratory.

Our Sunday workshop will be led by one of the most sought-after yoga and workshop instructors in Austin, Marnie Castor.

In this workshop we will explore what it means to be an active listener.   We will learn tools to be non-reactive and we will learn to bravely and patiently communicate our feelings so that we can feel heard and seen.   We will close the workshop with a guided, meditative Yoga Nidra session so that the subconscious can receive our intentions.

Please note this is not your typical "yoga" - Yoga Nidra is designed with minimal movement (think: lying down). No prior yoga experience needed.

We'll start at 1:30 PM with an hour of mingling and venue exploring, followed by our instructor-lead workshop at 2:30 PM.

Bring a blanket or yoga mat if you have one. We will provide mats and blankets on a first-come, first-served basis. We politely ask for a $5 donation (cash or Venmo) to help cover Marnie's cost.

Healthy snacks, hot teas, kombucha, and more will be served.

This event is open to the public - bring a friend and join us for a unique learning experience!
