Arawana's work has taken her around the globe, sharing Social Presencing Theater, Meditation, 4D Mapping, and numerous other social practices designed to enrich communication and ethical living


Social Presencing Theater Basics

Social Presencing Theater Basics. This is a two day in person course that introduces participants to the Social Presencing Theater practices. Watch a version of this done in Italy a few years ago. 

Continuing Social Presencing Theater

Continuing Social Presencing Theater deepens understanding of the practices and focuses on design and application of practices within specific contexts and settings. Workshops are available that focus on The Village practice using Aesthetic Language Cards.

4-D Mapping

A Social Presencing Theater team offers 4-D Mapping (systems mapping) to clients either in person or remotely.

SPT Advanced Training

Arawana, Manish Srivastava, Angela Baldini and guest faculty offer a year-long training that includes individual mentoring and projects.

Social Art Residencies

Arawana offers 3 to 10 day Social Art Residencies either in the Hudson Valley, New York or in specific locations, in which participants create short performances based on sensing interviews. These are presented to spark innovation conversations in communities. 

Meditation and Dharma Art

Genuine art—dharma art—is simply "the activity of nonaggression" as a quote by the Tibetan meditation teacher, Chogyam Trungpa. These courses invite us to deepen our connection between a contemplative practice and the creative process. We explore how this artistic journey gives birth to nonaggressive activity and expression that can be a powerful force in the transformation of society.
