Intro weekend – Prague – Czech Republic

An introduction to Clowning in Praguenews

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 to overcome the fears that block us from being fully present in the here and now.
The group size is limited to 12.

Venue: Prague, Czech Republic

9.30 am to 5.30 pm on both days. Tea and coffee will be provided, please bring lunch to share.
