As someone who spent much of my life with shyness, an anxiety disorder, and periodic depression, clowning was the last thing I would have ever anticipated for myself as a life love and path! Yet one day when I was living in Montreal and feeling very stuck and lost, I began to have night and day dreams of clowning that I can only call divine guidance. Some of them linked clowning to healing, and some of them linked clowning to ecology and the earth. I didn’t know what this all meant, but I decided to feel my way forward and see what I could discover. After various clown trainings and then a doctorate in theatrical clowning and land relationship as an Anglo-Saxon settler on Turtle Island, I can truly say I am more in love with this artistic and deeply psychological practice.
I invite you to come and play! Contact me with any questions or concerns, firstname.lastname@example.org or 250 880 3371.
I gratefully and joyfully acknowledge the support of the Canada Council of the Arts.
