Laughing and Singing Our Way Through Shame


(photo credit Blondine Maurice, co-clown Mosa McNeilly)

It is my delight to invite you to Laughing and Singing our Way Through Shame. You can expect an opening circle, an inner child meditation, a trust game, a few silly simple theatre and singing games, discussion on the gifts of shame, and time for reflection, integration, and feedback. Wear clothes you can move in (layers are good) and water to drink. Costumes provided!

You can expect a play space where you always have the choice to participate, where no put downs are allowed, and where we celebrate “mistakes”.

The cost is $10.00. As with all my workshops, there is a sliding scale or trade to make it accessible.

This playshop is for you if you
• Are feeling burned out and would like an opportunity to play like you could when you were a child
• Want to try something theatrical or creative but feel nervous to do so
• Struggle with shyness, anxiety, or depression
• Would like more silliness or laughter in your life
• Would like an opportunity to stretch your comfort zone and practice playful emotional expression in a low stakes, safe-enough space

I am so honoured and excited to share this work with you!

Tuesday, February 12th, 630-830 pm, Nan’s Rock Shop, 13995 Highway 1, Wilmot, NS

Laughing and Singing our Way Through Fear

I give deep thanks to an unknown Buddhist community in Nova Scotia for the title of this workshop.  A friend saw the flyer and suggested I offer the same.

It is part of a series: Laughing and Singing our Way Through Anger, Sadness, and Guilt/Shame.

This playshop includes an opening circle, a short heart-centering meditation, a warm up, some gentle theatre games for non-theatre people, some singing, a reflective exercise, and a closing circle.

Quotes from past participants:

“I feel without baggage” -Alison

“You led us gently into vulnerability.  I was thinking, I don’t know if I can do this.  And then I did it!” -Holly

“Megan’s sensitivity and deep research for her PhD combine to create a heart opening and inspirational workshop.  I left feeling very happy in my heart and lucky to ‘walk to the wall’ with clowns holding a sacred space.” -Lisa Marie

I will be offering them at Nan’s Rock Shop in Wilmot and at ArtsPlace in Annapolis Royal over the next few months.  Watch here for dates and times, or contact me to let me know of your interest or ask me questions. or 902 840 1734.
