Our community members aspire to the following guidelines. We invite you to do the same so you can make the most of your learning experience.
Stay present: Be as fully present as you can during the workshop. Refrain from the use of cell phone and other electronic devices while in classrooms or public spaces.
Be mindful of time: Pay attention to the schedule, arriving on time for sessions and meals, and helping to ensure that segments begin and end on time.
Create a safe space: Observe confidentiality. Be mindful to give constructive input and feedback during workshop exercises.
Stay open: Practice deep listening. Be respectful of the range of ideas and opinions that may be expressed.
Share and connect: Meet new friends, talk about what you’re experiencing, sit with a variety of people, and network.
Do something different: Break out of your habitual patterns. Speak up rather than remain silent, or listen rather than speak. Go for a break rather than stay with the crowd, or join in rather than sit alone.
Take care of yourself: Participate fully, but also take advantage of your surroundings.
