LAST DAY AND TIME OF EVENT

EVENT DESCRIPTION

In this experiential workshop we will start with exercises to connect the group, which can be done in any Focusing partnership or group.


We will play improv games of two types: some which are quick and spontaneous, and others which have a Focusing foundation and slower tempo.


We will also do some improvisational creative writing from our felt senses.


Woven throughout will be guided exercises that can also be done when viewing the recording. 


This workshop is intended for those with Focusing experience, though no experience with improv is required. Attending live is encouraged as there will be the opportunity to practice the exercises in breakout rooms and to ask questions during the workshop. All registrants will receive a link to the recording approximately two weeks after the workshop. (Breakout rooms are not recorded.)


Format

We use Zoom videoconferencing for our online classes. You will need to have a computer/mobile device. Calling in by phone is also possible but not preferred. This class will be held in meeting format so that all participants will see the presenter and each other.
