Strategies for Failing Better when Life Fails You

General, Entrepreneurship, Leadership, Community / Networking, Business Development, Women in Tech, Inspirational, Professional Development, HR

In 2017 I've delivered a TED talk after which I've experienced a nervous breakdown.
What led to it was a series of unfortunate events including my mom's diagnosis with Alzheimer's at the age of 58, my divorce and failing my PhD comprehensive exams.
Over the years of my doctoral studies I was enriched and inspired by my mom and my dad and empowered by the impact my work showed to have on people’s lives. However, as my mom's health deteriorated my nervous system started signaling for help.

I wish to share a story of a failing caregiver and researcher who broke down several times until she has rediscovered her strength in movement therapy. I wish to share a story of life and death of empathy and identification of caregiving and care taking. I wish to share my story of survival and triumph, and I wish for you to know that if you are on a similar path you can reach out for help. It's not a path to be taken alone. It is a together kind of way. I'm here to hold your hand, join me.

Non Violent Body Communication

General, Leadership, Inspirational

This workshop is an invitation to use our bodies as agents of change through which we can embody the giraffe language (non violent communication way of life) using our soma (body language). We are going to draw inspiration from the given moment, using improvisation techniques and strategies taken from Focusing and mediation practices.

Mediation 101: Using Immersive Theatre for Conflict Resolution

General, Soft Skills, Inspirational, HR

Each of us is an agent of change.
Participatory Art, like ritual, has transformative power.

We can foster a paradigm shift in the way we treat ourselves and the world around us by immersing ourselves in an embodied artistic experience.

Participatory art has the force of cultivating empathy, compassion, resilience, sustainability, response-ability, and social justice.

I create and mentor processes of immersive theatrical experiences that invite people from different sectors and different walks of life to come together and collaborate in order to create a meaningful transformative lived experience.

By curating dreamscapes in work, urban and online environments, I touch subjects that often times are excluded from mundane conversations and bring them to the forefront by offering an embodied, immersive and transformative experience for the participants.
