Identify a place where you find solace. This might be a daily practice or somewhere you go only when you need it, it may also be a place that exists largely in your head. It may be that you have been there once or often or that you have never been there but only imagined it.
On the first day of the workshop be prepared to:
Describe it in exactly 60 words.
Describe it in 5 positions or postures.
