Healing Your Emotions Through Play: A Psychosomatic Journey
WHAT: Learn to befriend your most challenging emotions through laughter and play with others. A seven month playshop series for adults through Selkirk College.
WHERE: Kaslo, BC and Zoom. This is an in person and online blend class.
WHEN: September 2021 – March 2022, every second Wednesday evening of the month. 630 – 800 pm Pacific time. First class September 8th, 2021.
HOW: Each class entails meditation, collaborative improv singing and theatre games, collaborative play with personal emotion stories, and discussion of the gifts of the featured emotion in a supportive and compassionate environment. A small group allows us to go deep – maximum 8 participants.
WHY: Collaborative improv is about playful movement, collectivity, and gentle silliness. Play and laughter facilitate learning and connection. The emotion work is based on the teachings of Karla McLaren (www.karlamclaren.com) with the underlying belief that all emotions are necessary and important to inform our actions and our lives. Note: this course can be a potent and playful support for trauma healing, although it is not meant as a replacement.

WHY: In these emotional times of uncertainty, collaborative improv and clowning gives us a change to laugh, play, and feel together in a compassionate context.
