The Practice of Playfulness –
The Practice of Playfulness for beginners
with Ailon Freedman
Saturday May 28th – 14:00 -17:00
Top Studio @ Colet House
Who says your spiritual practice needs to be serious? What if playfulness could become a pathway towards self-discovery and wholeness?
In this workshop we will learn to reconnect with our buried sense of childlike play and literally ‘feed our inner child’ with what it’s hungry for.
We’ll draw from the worlds of clowning, improv, mime and dance as well as spontaneous silliness and generalised irreverence. Together, this unlikely cocktail will leave you feeling joyous, open-hearted and flooded with endorphins.
We will top and tail the sessions with a short check-in to see how we feel before and after. This session is specifically aimed at those with little or no experience of such practices
‘I lost three things from your self-discovery workshop. A stiff body, a numb heart and a disease called seriousness.’
‘Literally like being drunk without any alcohol.’
’It’s such a cliche, but tonight you proved that Laughter really IS the best medicine. Thank you.’
Price: £40 / £30 Concessions-Members.
This event is a collaboration with our friends at Mandala Centre. They are talented practitioners offering a range of workshops and events known as ‘The Mandala of You.’ Their curriculum unites mindfulness, playfulness and embodiment to feed you from the centre outward and to uncover your most radiant expression of self.
Ailon Freedman’s adult life has been devoted to the synthesis and marriage of spiritual practice with humour and playfulness. He has worked as a yoga teacher, corporate facilitator and public speaking coach, as well as an artist, comedian, clown and drummer. He has brought many of these elements together in his trainings Clown Healing, Speak from the Heart and Free your Inner Artist.
Ailon’s mission is to help people discover their sense of freedom, wellness and inner balance through not only yoga and mindfulness but also creativity, celebration and fun. This endeavour is currently taking shape as The Mandala of You curriculum at Colet House.
