THE PRACTICE OF PLAYFUL PRESENCE

“Kerstin Caldwell has put together a stellar program to help you no matter where you are at in your life! I’ve attended countless workshops in the past, and this one was different. We laughed, we played, and we dug down deep helping me uncover blocks I didn’t know existed. Even weeks after the event, the lessons have stayed with me helping me through both a stressful time and a business expansion. This is a must-attend workshop!”
~ Denise O.
I feel much more at ease after this workshop , it has allowed me to regain the wonderful sense of playing that I had when I was young. This workshop has allowed me to give myself permission to play, letting go of my thoughts of failure and being right; and whether or not I’m being approved of by others. Expect to get to know yourself and uncover who are as you let go of whatever it is that you put yourself down with.
~ Matthew J.
“Take this class. Don’t wait. It’s such a pleasure to discover deep truths about yourself through play. If you’re curious about wanting to be more present with yourself and your emotions, this is a great way to explore that in a safe and fun environment.”
~ Tom L.

Have you ever frozen in front of a room full of people? You forget what to say, and then slide into the story in your head that says everyone thinks you are crazy? Maybe you’ve noticed you’re forgetting the details that make your day go smoothly, as you attempt to balance pressure at work, maintain order at home and still find time to nurture relationships with family and friends?

You, my friend, are completely normal. You’ve simply lost your connection to the present moment.  The good news is – you can shift that by cultivating a more playful presence.

There is a fun and easy way to reconnect to this very moment right now. I mean this one. Wait… this one. I mean… this one. (See what I did there?) By simply playing a series of Improvisational games, you will discover the key to presence. Contrary to popular belief, Improvisation is not about being funny- it’s about listening, responding and being fully present in the moment with yourself, with those around you and with the task at hand.

Presence is a natural state.  We were all born with this ability and reconnecting to this state is possible. All it takes is a willingness to move toward it and commitment to dedicated practice. This workshop is fun, reflective and can be habit-changing for those who fully commit to releasing obstacles that disconnect them from playful moments as they arise.

In this six-week course, we will gather weekly to explore the lessons of presence embedded into Improvisation exercises cultivated by the mother of Improvisation- Viola Spolin. By engaging in what Viola coined a “Direct Experience”, we will discover the behaviors that keep us moving forward in the joyful flow of play and examine the behaviors that hold us back. Along with weekly meetings, you will be able to schedule a thirty minute Zoom session with Kerstin who will provide individualized support as you cultivate this presence in your own life. You will walk away with a deeper connection to yourself and you intentions, armed with tools and strategies that will allow you to remain in a state of playful presence once the workshop is over.
