Event description

Description

Are you a heart-centred person who wants more love, joy, meaning and fulfillment in your life?

And/or are you a coach, healer or therapist who supports other people to heal and thrive, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually?

And/or are you an actor, improviser or drama teacher who’d like to explore some innovative ways of using improv games to build teamwork, communication, creativity...?

You’re invited to “Life is a Playground of Possibilities – Improvising More Resourceful, Joyful Ways of Being”, an experiential workshop led by improv performer, bodyworker/healer and storyteller Kay Ross.

Weaving together her interests in personal/spiritual development and healing, improvisation and storytelling, Kay has developed a concept she calls “The Playground of Possibilities”. She explains: “Life is a playground of possibilities! In every moment, the Universe makes abundant offers to us and invites us to decide what we want, trust that it’s possible to have it, approach life with an improvisational mindset, take bold action, transform the stories we believe about ourselves, and have fun.”

So in this practical workshop (no observers; everyone participates), you’ll:
• examine and transform your limiting, unresourceful thoughts, beliefs and stories about yourself and the world,
• listen to the wisdom of your body,
• pay attention to the offers from the Universe,
• play some improvisation games where you’ll try on some new, more resourceful ways of thinking and being,
• play with Kay’s “Playground of Possibilities” card deck (52 cards with thought- and action-provoking questions),
• get a taste of what it might be like to live in The Playground of Possibilities, every day, and
• support other players to step into the Playground

Kay presented a shorter version of this workshop at the conference of the international Applied Improvisation Network (AIN) in Montreal, Canada, last September. One participant commented afterwards on Facebook: “Collective magic, under your careful guidance, at work! What a lovely thing to participate in!”

Minimum age: 15
Maximum number of participants: 24
Language: English
Please wear loose, comfortable clothes and bring some water – you’ll be moving around and playing some games.
Oh, and just to reassure you, no improvisation experience is required! This is not a workshop about learning to be an improv performer or a comedian.

Please register and pay in advance. If you prefer to pay via bank transfer (HK$300), that’s fine! Please contact Kay for details: 9773 3751 or kayross [at] hkstar dot com

The venue, Steam Studio, is a dance and yoga studio that includes a lovely little cafe where you can buy snacks, tea, coffee and softdrinks (workshop participants get a 20% discount).

The entrance to the building is actually around the corner in Queen Street, between Connaught Road West and the tramline on Des Voeux Road West, near the Hotel Ibis.
