Youth on Fire: Embodied Global Leadership

Monday Jan. 15 - Friday Jan. 19, 8:30 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Melissa Michaels, EdD

This week-long journey will include a rigorous reflection on our own adolescent development and how that has shaped our destiny. We will consider the developmental needs of the emerging adult and how our culture meets them or not. From there, we will re-imagine what is possible for the spirit of youth in all of us. Drawing from Dr. Michaels’ 30+ years of working with young people around the world, we will address creative, spiritually inspired and inclusive ways to meet the needs of young people around the world, including parts of ourselves that we may have lost along the fast moving and rugged waters of adolescence. Our focus will be on the arts of body, heart, and soul that birth embodied, global, leaders.
