Sebastopol Unconventional Networking and Coworking

Networking can be dreadful, right? What if were down to earth... and it also provided a way to create more community, as well as move things forward with your work?

Would you like to both meet people in a warm, authentic setting - and also get stuff done? Welcome to Unconventional Networking & Coworking!

WHO IT'S FOR: Spiritually-minded and conscious professionals, coaches, holistic practitioners, artists and creatives, healers, and others who want to make a difference.

Please arrive 11:45am-12pm, so we can start with *everyone* at 12pm. (Consider it more of a workshop, not a drop-in networking).

1) We begin with 90 minutes of Unconventional Networking, a semi-guided fun and easy process to let go of both discomfort and expectations. You'll have exercises to stay present with yourself as you connect with ease.
2) For those who wish to stay, we then transition to guided coworking time. We'll have breaks for movement and connection, with focused "get-stuff-done" time.

PROVIDED: Tea, coffee, structured water and snacks will be provided.
BRING: If you're staying the whole time and would like to eat a full lunch after we move on to coworking, you're welcome to bring lunch or more snacks with you.
WEAR: whatever you like to wear with clients or professional connections - casual to business casual - that also is comfortable for you.
