NATALIE ADDISON

Movement
 
Natalie has a long history of dance, wellness, and fitness. She’ll be kick-starting our bodies each day so our minds are ready for whatever may come!

“Humans don’t mind hardship, in fact they thrive on it; what they mind is not feeling necessary. Modern society has perfected the art of making people not feel necessary. It's time for that to end.”

― Sebastian Junger

So we decided it was time to act.

To stop waiting and create a weekend that we wanted. To inspire the dreamers, creators, leaders and doers to break into a new head space. To do what they do but even better, with more creativity and connection to their community.

we will spend our time purposefully

There will be keynotes, discussions, and workshops structured to spark the passion and love each of us has for our profession, skills and communities...big or small!

With the city as our playground

For a few days, West Palm Beach will be ours. We will walk, run, and bike this place...We believe that we’ll absorb all that we experience in deeper ways if we interact with the city before, after and in between sessions.
