Creativity is an important and sometimes undervalued lawyering skill that underwrites exceptional advocacy and problem solving. Mindfulness feeds creativity and can elevate a lawyer’s practice by reducing stress and reactivity and fostering clarity of mind and speech. There is no singular way to cultivate creativity and mindfulness. This program offers one approach: movement.
Movement instructor Nico Allen will introduce a rich and dynamic moving meditation practice. The invitation is simple – come and move your body. There are no steps to learn, and no previous experience is required. Bring an open mind and come prepared to move!
