Workshop: An Introduction to Living Playfully

Saturday 13th April, 10am till 1pm
In this workshop we’ll be practically pondering what it takes, as an adult, to live more playfully. We’ll be exploring how we can move through our creative blocks and adopt simple but effective practices that help us to activate the player within.
We’ll play games, create and move together; meeting ourselves and others with curiosity, enjoyment and amusement. We’ll be exploring themes of embodiment, improvisation, collaboration, failure and the ‘well-played game’.
You will…
– Begin to identify, untangle and play with the structures that don’t serve you
– Ignite your playful nature in a safe and held space
– Feel and learn the benefits of being silly
– Meet likeminded playful people in your community
– Be inspired to start a self directed playful practice
Who’s the facilitator?
Katie Rose White from The Best Medicine
That’s me! For over 8 years now I have been facilitating group workshops that focus on laughter and playfulness. I have trained with laughter yogis, clowns, improv professionals and mediation teachers. I have studied, listened to, watched and read about play, and taken great interest in how it can benefit myself and others. I have had the privilege of sharing these practices and ideas with hundreds of people all over the country, spoken on podcasts, delivered online training and in person events. I have a specific interest in encouraging adults to be playful, and love to create spaces that nurture this.
Who’s it for?
Even though this workshop is full of games and playful activities it is for adults not children. The session is for adults interested in playfulness; whether you’re an artist, teacher, butcher, baker, candlestick maker it really doesn’t matter! All you need to be is willing to play.
If you have any access needs I need to be aware of please contact me directly.
Testimonial from Previous Playful Participant
‘As we moved through the morning together I felt parts of me remembering, other parts shedding the hard exterior of disconnection. Underneath a sadness at the fact that I had been for so long, scared to fully embrace the playful side of me, acknowledging societal conditioning with each other and giving ourselves permission to explore. Katie guided us through activities to connect, to explore, to awaken our imagination and creativity. It was joyous. Absolutely the best medicine. If you get a chance to go to one of Katies workshop , you will be in really safe hands, say yes, honour yourself, your inner child and the simple fun of play.’
