SPT Practice, Spring 23

Social Presencing Theater  Open Practice

with Founder Arawana Hayashi

You are invited to the Hudson Valley Social Presencing Theater practice group hosted by Arawana Hayashi and Andrea Frank. 

Social Presencing Theater is an innovative social art form co-created by Arawana Hayashi and colleagues at the Presencing Institute. This embodiment practice deepens reflection and supports individual, team, organizational, and social transformation. 

Social Presencing Theater invites us to tap into our natural creativity and ability to fully embody the “performance” of being human. Its movement practices support people in recognizing their own and others’ embodied wisdom, compassion, and courage to act. No previous experience is necessary.
