What is Sacred Clowning?
It is very simple.
By being mindful of our breath, our movement and our thoughts, we bring our attention to this moment, to the here and now.
Whether we are watching summer flowers in the garden or autumn leaves drift down from the trees. Or perhaps we are with a group of people or simply sitting on our own.
By learning to let go of our thinking process and simply being more present, to be more grounded, mindfulness becomes a way of engaging with the world around us and by bringing our attention to the here and now, we bring the possibility of becoming more genuinely focused in a creative way, whether we are meditating, dancing or computer programming.
Thus when we combine creativity, mindfulness and the sacred mime clown, there arises a possibility of creating a magical childlike space. in which to sit still, to play, or to engage with another.
Imagine a child rattling a stick along the railings until something catches their eye, a butterfly flutters past. For those few minutes, time seems to stand still and last forever.
Imagine as the clown enters this magical space with an inner stillness, a deep presence and a trust in the unknown. This is healing with unconditional love.
It is using Sacred Mime Clowning together with mindfulness to reconnect to ourselves the joy and simplicity of a childlike innocence.
