The unprecedented rate of technological change - with 24/7 connection to others, the development of virtual realities and virtual relationships of all sorts - may be redefining what it is to be human in the 21st century. This workshop will look at the secret world of teenagers (and adults) and offer suggestions of how we can get back to a reality grounded in authentic feeling and connection.
