Take the time to ground and connect with yourself and others. Participants pair up and are led through a simple and effective massage sequence (done through the clothes), while being guided to notice the mindfulness, gratitude, and interconnectedness that naturally arise while trading massages. Bring a friend to trade massages with, or find a friend at the workshop!
