Fast Game

Presented by: Llewellyn Falco

We are going to play a matching game aimed at teaching you intuition. The same kind of games used to teach people to identify chickens when they are young, or teach actually pigeons to detect cancer from MRI slides.
Come learn how to learn taste and see the patterns only your subconscious can detect.

I am a social monkey who experiments on groups to find how we can best connect, support, and serve each other to create great things. My primary tools are Authentic Relating and Circling, although I'm not above throwing some acroyoga or dance into the mix. I teach emotional and social intelligence to communities across the world.

Warning labels:

1) Objectives in mirror may seem greater than they appear
2) May actually mean it when I ask how you are.
