  • Share stories of your work in the field.

  • Significant moments, successes, challenges you’ve experienced.
  • Do you feel as if you belong to the PW local or global community? Why or why not? 


  • How you’ve tailored PW to fit your use cases or combined it with other modalities.
  • New learnings and areas of current research. What are the gaps and weaknesses in your practice and application of PW? What else do you want to see?
  • How you introduce PW to those who are not familiar with the paradigm. How can PW be more accessible? 


  • How your application, practice and understanding of PW has evolved.
  • Personal stories of how PW has influenced your life and/or work.
