Clowning is a state of playfulness that allows us to experience a child- like, naïve and vulnerable state of being ... and paradoxically we learn, grow, and are strengthened through reconnecting playfully with what makes us most vulnerable. This approach to clowning is not a technique (tricks, gags and routines), but a personal journey towards finding one’s unique way of being - by listening and being receptive, essential skills for any creative and imaginative endeavor. It is only in letting go of control that we begin to be surprised by the depth of that which is around us and within us.

The word “courage” comes from a root that means “heart.” Through clowning and 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.

This 5-day intensive allows a deeper experience of the transformational clowning process and establishes the foundation for all our work. It is an essential first step before going on to more advanced courses such as Social Clowning and the Facilitators Training. Many people return to our workshops repeatedly, as this state of being becomes vital to them.
