Over the next few months our programs are going to be popping up around the Bay Area. We’ll still hold our Lessons, Practice Studios and Office Hours at Makeshift Society, but we’ll also be crossing town and the bay.
First stop is Impact Hub Oakland. We’re thrilled to be part of their first Self-Shop Week that starts this Saturday and runs through Friday 22nd. Self-Shop Week is a workshop series where people can pick and choose effective workshops in areas they’d like to best improve. Sessions are open to both Impact Hub Members and Non-Members (at different prices).
Storefront is presenting two programs as part of the week. We have Flynn Coleman giving Office Hours next Thursday with 50-minute one-on-one sessions at 2pm, 3pm, 4pm, and 5pm. Flynn is an international human rights attorney, mindfulness and creativity teacher, author, TEDx speaker, Huffington Post writer, former competitive athlete, social entrepreneur and innovator, and founder and CEO. Her Office Hours will focus on how we can define success, and those metrics that we traditionally use to define what we want in our jobs and in our lives. Her approach draws widely on concepts from philosophy and psychology to business and history, literature and neuroscience to mindfulness and art, sociology, and political thought. You can reserve a session here!
We also have Ruth Whippman returning with her group Lesson on what it is that really makes us happy. Her forthcoming book The Pursuit of Happiness, and Why It’s Making Us Anxious is already much anticipated (and was recently featured in Newsweek’s nine books to make you think in 2016). She’ll take the research and learnings that went into it and reframe that in an engaging session that makes you question how you think about what happiness is and how to get it. Sign up here!
Hope you can join us for either/both programs over in beautiful Oakland, as Roman Mars like to say!
