Clown Life Weekend Intensive:

Welcome to The Clown Life intensive, a weekend that focuses on: Play, Presence, Humanity, Self-expression, Community, Song, Risk taking/Stepping out of the comfort zone.

These attributes can be incredibly healing also as the nature of the workshop is held in a wondrously supportive & encouraging way. This weekend is an introduction to the philosophies of Clown without expecting you to become one.. We will be looking at how the practice of Clown can help us to live whole heartedly, true to ourselves in every day life and with tons more self-acceptance.

The Study of Clown:

Clown to some may well sound intimidating as well as often being associated with the Barns and Bailey red nosed circus however it is so much more than that! Clown is a deep development process unleashing 'whole hearted' humanity through play, presence and vulnerability. These core topics have been proven by many to benefit ones life exponentially! We've all heard that in order to live fully 'one must dare greatly'. Brené Brown's inspiring research has pointed out the importance of vulnerability through her studies of shame, vulnerability being the birth place of creativity, innovation and change. Clown explores this study through experiential exercises that will awaken your listener, empower your risk taker, challenge your "know it all" and enliven our community spirit. The sharing and bonding experiences of what clown workshops bring are tremoundous, all are wonderously supportive and encouraging.

This workshop will benefit all and especially team leaders, public speakers, decision makers, performers, those who struggle with change/risk or anyone who wants to experience living more whole heartedly and daring more greatly.
