Like a carver who liberates the shape that has always existed within the stone, self-actualization is a reductive process; one in which we come into relationship with the integrated self as we watch mental structures and stories that no longer serve fall away.
The process of healing, of self-actualizing, and of flourishing as a human being is not about learning new skills, adding new features, upgrading the self we are. Although those things can be delightful and satisfying, paradoxically, the process of becoming is a process of simplifying.
A readily available route into the self is through the vehicle in which we all arrived—the body. Improv work asks us to listen for the story that wants to unfold. The weaving together of somatic awareness and improv is a potent combination for personal growth, to listen for and trust the self-story that wants to unfold.
Through experiential, mindful, body-centric exercises, we will explore techniques to listen more deeply to the wisdom within. These are techniques that coaches, therapists and healers can use to support others in the unfolding of their personal stories. And we will play!
