Places are powerful. They tie us to people. They tie us to memories. They affect who we are and influence who we become. In this workshop, attendees will explore how their total environment affects the depth and quality of their life. We will look into where attendees have lived and traveled to, their hometowns, where they live now, and how their specific dwelling place, local neighborhood, and greater town or city all contribute deeply to who they are and what they are experiencing at this moment of their life.
This program is presented by Paul Jacob (Jake) and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
