In this highly interactive and reflective workshop, we seek to bring the world of Mindfulness/Mediation together with that of Applied Improvisation. What does it really mean to be "in the present moment”?  The overlap between the two is remarkable:  Notice Everything connects with mindful sensory awareness.  Make Your Partner Look Good is all about compassion and loving-kindness.  And Use Everything is about embracing abundance and making a difference in the world.
Through practical exercises we will explore these themes through both lenses, then discuss how the relate and also how they differ.  Is the Mindful Improviser doubly powerful?
Finally, how can Applied Improv help to not only teach business skills or help us have a good time, but also promote personal and spiritual growth?
