Playfully Present: Mindful Theater Practices for Connection & Creativity
NOTE: Registration is required. Registration is open until the day of the class date. There is a minimum number of participants required for each class. If the minimum number of participants has not been met by the day of class, the class may be canceled. In this event, you will be contacted directly via email/text on the day of the class regarding cancelation, and you will be issued a full refund.

This is an ongoing group that is based around theater and drama therapy techniques and is intended to provide participants with a felt experience of being present in their bodies, present with others, and to cultivate the playfulness and creative self expression that can only come with being mindful and present. Expect to build your skills for mindful embodiment through theater-based activities with some fun and play to energize you, release stress, and boost your creativity! Make friends with discomfort, let go of judgment, build acceptance, and be in the moment!
This group is for anyone 18 years old and older. Please arrive a few minutes early your first time in order to find the suite and sign a consent form for participation. Be aware that you will feel most free to participate if you wear clothing that allows you to bend/stretch/kneel comfortably. You do not need any previous mindfulness/meditation or theater experience to participate. Sarah will meet you at your comfort level, so please take a risk and give it a try! First visit is free for the month of May!
