COURAGE TO BE – CLOWN 1
Sunday July 03, 2016 - Friday July 08, 2016
Starts 18:15 on first day - Finishes 14:00 on last day
Clown level 1
The word “courage” comes from a root that means “heart.” Through clowning and connecting to our playful spirit we can develop and sustain, in ourselves and each other, the heart to be who we truly are, to trust life and ourselves. “Taking heart” is a profoundly inward process, and an invitation for overcoming the fears that block us from being fully present in the “Here and Now.” This course establishes the ground for all our work and is an essential first step before going on to more advanced courses.
The group is limited to 12
