THE BIRTH OF CLOWN – A one-day light and playful introduction to the art of clowning
Saturday November 14, 2015  from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm

Why clown?
*Because the little red clown’s mask gives us big permission.
*Because clowning frees us from the “shoulds” and “should nots” of our culture and
*Because clowning trains us to be present to our real and true feelings and responses.
*Because clowning is liberating, playful, surprising and FUN!
*Because you can let go and celebrate, for once, everything that goes wrong instead of trying to get it right.

Honoring the art and mystery of human fumbling, clowning invites us to open a space for playfully responding out of honest presence and a truer listening to what is happening both inside and around us. Learning to welcome honest being is a liberating experience.
Through connecting to our naturally playful and creative spirit, we can develop and sustain, in ourselves and in each other, the heart to be who we truly are, to trust life and ourselves, and to open an empathic understanding towards our fellow human beings.
