*Who’s it for?*

This workshop is for people who need to be replenished. And who want to help sustain others. 

*What's this workshop for?*

To discover experientially and viscerally how play connects us and builds our resilience. AND to give you tools to lead others into more play!


*Tell me more!*

How can we be socially connected in this time of physical isolation? 

How can we build resilience even and especially in this time of uncertainty and flux?

Play boosts endorphins, 

lower inhibitions and social anxiety, 

and shifts our thinking from our fear center into a place 

where we can connect with others and ourselves in fresh ways.

Play replenishes our resilience.

In this workshop we will:

  • Play more than we lecture
  • Build connections between people
  • Increase comfort engaging on the Zoom platform by playing in it.

What games will we play? Exercises and games from both Liberating Structures and Applied Improvisation are invaluable for getting grounded, connected, engaged, playful, and spontaneous. No prior improvisation experience is required or advantageous. 

Zoom link will be provided upon registration. (in a confirmation email)

 (Seats are limited to the first 23 who register).
