What did you bring back a Vik Muniz coffee table book. Muniz is such an amazing artist- I went to see his exhibit at The High Museum three times in two days. I highly recommend watching his documentary “Waste Land.”
What’s really important to you right now Stanley Greenspan’s Floortime Approach and Y12SR (Yoga 12 Step Recovery). Floortime fosters connection with children by engaging with them on their level, meeting them where they are, and becoming passionate about what makes them smile. Y12SR’s founder, Nikki Meyers, was onto something truly special when she thought to combine the ancient wisdom of yoga with the life changing tools of the 12 steps. I love love love this work and am so excited that it has come to Raleigh.
