Comedy Improv: Humor for Health and Self-Discovery
May 9–11, 2014
Enjoy an uproariously fun workshop and soothe your spirit while re-energizing yourself with laughter. Learn the basic principles of comedy improvisation, including the central lesson of being completely present and open to whatever happens. With skillful guidance, we will work together as a group to create a safe environment, eliminating any individual fear. Having fun, we relax and when we are relaxed, we listen, communicate, overcome insecurities, and express our full capabilities. During this dynamic weekend, we will increase our confidence, improve our relationship skills, and learn to creatively deal with the ambiguous and constantly changing circumstances of everyday life—all while celebrating the healing and joyful power of laughter. No previous improv experience necessary.
