Session outline

The story of living love as a practice in an India-based non-profit organisation called Youth Alliance. Our search has been one of creating transformative immersive experiences for young people in India enabling them to embark on a practice of reconnecting with self, each other and nature. The work has been nurturing a life-long community disrupting structures that no longer serve us. 'How does one design for an emergence of an ever-expanding structure of belonging and practice of living?' is a question we seek to co-sense into with you.
