Inese Priedite

About:

An excellent training provides a safe environment to identify and let go of limiting beliefs and behaviours and experiment with new ways of being. It includes ingredients such as adventure, presence and holding space, creative sparkles and warm relationships within the group.

I'm a traveller, trainer and researcher. Using unique combination of embodied learning and creative writing methods I support learners to artfully invoke body-based resources for their personal and professional growth.

Inese Priedite has 12 references for past work as a trainer and added 4 tools to the SALTO Toolbox.
