Invoking Gloria Anzaldúa's own practice of contemplative walking, we will take a brief "conocimiento walk" with the intention of opening all of our senses (including our sixth intuitive sense that taps into cenote knowledge, a collective well of wisdom) before we write.
Seating is limited, so registration is required.
