Get inspired to be with people in a new and integrated way to elicit the actual experience from the person, not "a user." We will dig deep into the latest research in empathic training, methods of compassion training, relational research and explore ways of finding greater meaning as a UX researcher. In this group we will get practical about incorporating interpersonal neurobiology and mindfulness with classic UX methodology. Most of all, we will practice what we preach and have create a great experience for ourselves! We plan to have FUN being together at happy hours, learning experientially, sharing knowledge, and mixing things up yoga, climbing, meditation, being outside, and more.
