While attending the International Association of Facilitators North American Conference, I had the privilege to lead a workshop entitled: “It’s Like Riding a Bike.” This workshop focused on the importance and value of experiential learning and of designing icebreaker & energizer exercises with a purpose. Here are images from that workshop, offered in fulfillment of the promise I made to all who attended on Saturday, April 12, 2014, to share these posters and my handout in electronic form.

Thinking about the Bread of Life

It is time to bake.
First we awaken the yeast;
then bread becomes life.

First we crawl, walk, run.

First we crawl, walk, run.
Then come kata, waza, do.
Aikido unites.

... a new project for the new year. Hope to see you on the mat.
