Mindcamp adds a Passeggiata to its program! And guess what? We enjoyed it so much, the free hugs by Tzabia Siegel as much as the “Improve your Thinking” Well by John Sedgwick and the ones we’ve missed — but heard were so good — on the other end of the Passeggiata.
But Nathalie Doré and I were busy putting up this little show for you, dear Mindcampers. This Passeggiata that is about “the casual encounters that are the true heart of a good conference” as they explain, was an opportunity to offer this short performance I improvised in a fortune theatre made of a smiley-line of chairs and a natural sunset as set design.
This poem I have written is about being “enchained in your genes” (and not just your jeans as Nathalie pointed out when introducing me to a nicely dress-casual audience). I hope it brought your hearts together (and what about those Left and Right hemispheres connecting more…?)
[It did! It did! — signed, Mindcamp]
