About The Event

Exert vs Intake. Where does that end and taking ownership start to flourish? send(ing) love is a collaborative process that lives in five chapters. It rides waves of fear, manipulation, confusion, joy, sensuality, vulnerability and hangs on to a hope of confidence. Tangled within the script that our mind composes, it’s easy to fall into an endless loop of serving others when it’s time to love yourself.
