Disconnect to Reconnect: Digital Detox 101 with Levi Felix
In this tech-free Digital Detox workshop, we’ll take a Digital Detox and explore the physical, psychological, and social benefits of unplugging while sharing techniques and best practices that help us stay present in our always-on, constantly connected, digitally-driven world.
Together we’ll examine what it means to press pause, how it feels to live in the always-tethered digital age, and reconnect through a series of hands-on sessions:, pranayama (breathwork), authentic self expression exercises, meditation, creative writing & journaling, individual and group play, walking meditation, discussions, games, innovative ice-breakers (that can make new friends of strangers in moments) and analog community building tactics. Participants will take home their own personal strategies for creating more healthy relationships with their screens, as well as ideas to integrate into their homes, companies and rides on the subway. Well ask enormous questions of ourselves, our society and the cultural norms in which we live, opening up a dialogue that needs not only our attention, but intention in life.
Living a healthy and meaningful life is all about balance – though taking a Digital Detox is not simply about unplugging from time to time. Disconnecting is about turning off your gadgets so you can turn on – reconnecting with yourself and others, being present, exploring mindfulness, understanding our habits and exploring what makes us most human and alive. In fact, integrating the learnings from your experience offline into everyday life is more important than taking the time off in the first place. When we develop mindful relationships with our devices, we help ourselves create a sustainable foundation for our careers, personal wellness, and individual happiness.
