Play Ethic Creativity Workshop
At a time when individually, collectively, and globally we are being called upon to evolve creatively; when our souls, society and organisations need to be examined and healed, reconnecting with our inner child has never been more important.
Everyone has at one time accessed creative play, and they can again, with healing results. This experiential online workshop takes you on a journey into the natural environment of your own creativity, into a world of inspiration and connection that can lead you forward in a confident, light, and playful way. Whatever your walk of life, this workshop can help you to connect with your creative wellspring, to understand how creativity is already manifesting in your life, how to harness this creativity, and how to trust your own expression of it.
Many of our constructs, aspirations and received wisdom point to the importance of a strong work ethic, so much so that we do not learn to value creative play as a legitimate practice. In doing so we miss out on the creative wisdom that comes with lighthearted play and the subtle messages that whisper creative responses to our challenges.
These workshops are suitable for non-Artists, blocked Artists and practicing Artists alike. They are for people who find themselves at a crossroads or threshold, or wish to be, and will suit people with all backgrounds: whatever your specific dreams, challenges and walk of life, Play Ethic offers practical healing and innovation.
We will guide participants through a coherent, spacious, four-session journey, using story, artistic channels, creative play, and process-oriented facilitation practices. We take care to cater for all learning styles with our choice of exercises within a supportive peer environment. The workshop is inspired and informed by ‘The Artist’s Way’ (Julia Cameron), by the late Dr Chris Seeley’s ‘Artful Organisation’, by Process Oriented Psychology, by Helen and Jasmine’s experience of creativity and Deep Ecology.
