If you're wondering how we'll be spending our two days at Weaving Wellness, wonder no longer! We've prepared a Schedule at a Glance, with new information on the structure of the conference, as well as many new speakers.
In addition to the names we've already announced (which you can find here!), we're excited to welcome: David Geary, mia susan amir, Gabby Bath, Kamala Todd, Vanessa Richards, Ronnie Dean Harris, Jan Derbyshire, Ajay Masala Puri, Jacky Yenga, Rachel Iwaasa and Corey Matthews. We'll also be welcomed to the land by Chief Janice George, Carleen Thomas, and Quelemia Sparrow. We'll release bios for these presenters soon, and unveil even more names to look forward to, so check the conference webpage often. This is also how you can keep on top of any changes to the schedule that may occur.
Over the course of the two-day conference, delegates will be taken through streams focusing on four aspects of wellness: Relationship to the Geographies of Body and Space, Relationship to Self-Knowing and Embodied Lineage, Relationship to the Sound of our Hearts, and Relationship to Presence and Resurgence. Each stream will consist of an opportunity to "listen" (a moderated discussion between experts and practitioners in the given field), "share" (a guided reflection, where participants are invited to discuss, share knowledge, find new answers, and ask new questions) and "do" (a participatory piece of art, theatre, music, etc.).
