Thank you for one of the most special days of my life. You switched my inner light back on with your amazing gifts of love and light. Learning who I am, is exciting and scary. I loved my clown and allowing her out even if for only a short time is so liberating.

Reuben provided such a special atmosphere for our group. Through a series of seemingly simple exercises, he led us from the busy world and clutter of our days and minds back to a gentle, quiet essence, hopeful, curious, shy, innocent, optimistic, a place where each of our clowns seemed free and happy to stand up, Continue Reading

I would like to take this opportunity to say how truly inspiring I found the workshop and what a privilege it was to work with you. Going over to Norway really did add to the total experience. It was well worth the trip.

I was really looking forward to this workshop (in Japan)because my mum and sister had already experienced Reuben’s workshop (Norway, November 2010) and said they had really enjoyed it.

A wonderful merging of the sacred and playful. I was afforded an insight into the depth and discipline of clowning which I found incredibly valuable and unexpected given the length of the course.

I had a wonderful weekend and really got what sacred clowning is all about. You certainly enabled an inner stillness, a deep presence and a trust in the unknown – healing with unconditional love. Thank you for an amazing experience.

I enjoyed the Sacred Clown weekend very much. There was a good balance between having space for myself and performing using a clown nose with other participants.
