deviced! balancing life and technology in a digital world (the book) drops on november 8. i'm celebrating by throwing a party to go along with all the normal book launch trimmings (reading, signing, having the book on hand for sale).
the whole point of my research in the realm of technology is to help people understand why a moderate approach is beneficial. the only way to hope to stay moderate is to balance our technology use with a rich, fiery life. to that end, i'd love to gift you all with some experiences to fan the flames of your fiery life!
come from 6:30 to 7:30 to try some spicy new activities. we'll have all kinds of things for you to try (kendama and diabolo tricks, embodied pinterest vision board making, poems written on the spot inspired by your ideas and for you to take home, tribal marker body painting, fiery kombucha hot sauce samples, spicy mocktails and more).
from 7:30ish-8:00 we'll do all the traditional book launch things with a short reading, some thank yous, and a call to action.
8:00 kicks off the dance party extravaganza that every fiery life craves. dancers of all ages and abilities are encouraged to truly and fervently dance like no one is watching. no one will be, because we'll all be busy dancing!
this is my way of giving you a taste of the fiery life i encourage. mark your calendar, get ready to turn off your device, and come hang out with the most embodied people in portland on november 8. and...submit a dance song request below!
