Sounds interesting, I hope it's at a time that I can attend (from Australia!)

Wow, this is an amazing concept and certainly something many of us may do unconsciously but would do more powerfully consciously. Really looking forward to hearing more about it.

Sam you share something really important here; there is potential for us as educators in the experience of experiencing the awareness in attending to students stories. We look forward to sharing and learning with you soon.
