WHO AM I? WHAT AM I DOING? WHY AM I HERE? – SERIES OF 8 WEEKLY SESSIONS – THEORY, PERSONAL REFLECTIONS AND PRACTICAL GROUP WORK
Saturday March 05, 2022 - Saturday April 30, 2022
WITH VIVIAN GLADWELL AND KRISTIN CROWLEY
Each Saturday from 6:00pm – 8:00pm (UK Time) / 1:00pm – 3:00pm (Eastern Time) /
10:00am – 12:00pm (Pacific Time)
From 5 March to 30 April 2022
An exploration through clowning in eight sessions over nine weeks of these basic human questions: Who Am I? What Am I Doing? Why Am I Here?
With simple games, exercises and improvisations we will explore these questions individually and as a community.
Through clowning and connecting to our playful spirit we can develop and sustain, in ourselves and each other, the heart to be who we truly are, to trust life and ourselves. “Taking heart” is a profoundly inward process, and an invitation for overcoming the fears that block us from being fully present in the “Here and Now.”
Pre-requisites: There are no pre-requisites for this course. This workshop is open to advanced students and to those with no prior experience of the work.

Kristin Spaeth Crowley
Kristin did not come to clowning by choice, but was forced into it by wiser others who knew where she belonged. Her work as a clown and facilitator led to the fumbling discovery and recovery of a language she knows inwardly, loves, and could have lost.
Her specialities include weeping, falling in love, making mischief, and the invisible. She is grateful for the inspiration and example of those brilliant, talented, generous people she has been privileged to work with or been touched by – artists, musicians, athletes, educators, poets, seekers, thinkers, healers, and other “ordinary” fearful and courageous spirits willing to risk and dare. She is amazed and astonished by her family; her parents and siblings; her children, and those she has claimed unjustly as her own; by those braver than she, facing the ordinary challenges connected with being alive; and by forgiveness. She is interested in presences and possibilities. She is informed by life and living, by beauty, ugliness, music, laughter, poetry, nature, stillness, cruelty and compassion, by brave souls and tender hearts, by the struggle to realize the impulse that initiated a wish to be, and by the work she has to do. The mistakes she makes, the limitations she must overcome, the struggles she faces in being and becoming, the gifts she has been given, and her sense of wonder, reverence, and gratitude inform and guide her in her work with others. She works with individuals, companies, institutions, agencies, and organizations. She still struggles and falls down.
