“Insane. I had terrific time losing myself into play. It was food and medicine for the soul.”

Unearth the uniqueness of YOU, the strange and wonderful puzzle that makes up who you are. Wild Play Lab invites you to stir the playful pot, find your edges and fully embrace your whole weird and wonderful self in the comfort of your own home.

Using play as a tool for personal transformation, we'll explore techniques that can unlock creative blocks, release stored tension and create more space for our intuitive self to emerge. Everyone is welcome to play and explore!

This workshop uses play, creative meditation and improvisation to bring awareness to our unconscious behavioural patterns, and begin to consciously dismantle our limiting habits in a fun, accessible and safe environment. This is a deep and powerful practice of getting ‘out of our heads’, trusting the wisdom of our body to reveal to us the secrets hiding beneath the cracks of our bones waiting to be heard. Through creativity and movement we learn how to truly listen & connect; both to ourselves and each other. A crisp awareness arises and we discover our unique rhythm that is distinct to us alone.

Taking inspiration from children and animals, we regress to the primal self. The one that crawls, climbs, and is innately curious about the world. The primal self is in tune with what is all around and within them, and it is our journey to rediscover those lost and forgotten parts and welcome them back home. Let’s dive deep into the marrow of our being and share our story. This workshop includes elements of the following:

  • Improvisation.
  • Imaginative play.
  • Clown & acting.
  • Creative writing & storytelling.
  • Movement, dance & meditation.
  • Intuitive vocal freedom.

Keywords: Curiosity, fluidity , fun, freedom, flow, play, silliness, embodiment, clownish, connection, embodied, freeing, liberated, discovery, unknown
