Amalia Andrade, author of THINGS YOU THINK ABOUT WHEN YOU BITE YOUR NAILS
“The other side of fear” exercise
Through a small writing and drawing exercise we will try to tap into the other side of fear, understanding it as a necessary and primal emotion that is not always bad or negative. Fear can teach us many thing and we will be exploring ways in which it can actually HELP us achieve things.
 
Kathryn Nicolai, author of NOTHING MUCH HAPPENS HERE
“Happy Place” exercise
A writing exercise/meditation where Kathryn will show viewers how sensory details can build a safe place to keep them present.
 
Kristina Kuzmic, author of HOLD ON BUT DON’T HOLD STILL
“Hear Me Out” exercise
A family activity where each family member is asked to pick something they are really passionate about and then make a little presentation about it, an activity she wrote about in her book. The point is to help raise kids who put thought into the issues that matter to them, learn to express their opinions, learn to listen to opposing opinions and debate in a constructive way.
