workshop in mime, mindfulness & personal awareness

Mime & Sacred Clown Workshop for adults:

Theme: Introductory Workshop
Date and cost: Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th May 2019. The fee is £130.
Description: This non residentail workshop offers a gentle, fun and creative space with the Sacred Mime Clown.

When gently exploring the moment of stillness within meditation, mime and improvisation, we bring the mind home and arrive into the present moment.
In this interactive workshop we will begin with gentle warm up exercises, using the breath, voice and mindful movement. We will spend time listening to the quiet space inside and gradually through playful creativity, explore a range of emotions such as joy, empathy and more.
This is suitable for beginners and for those with more practise . Sometimes it is good to be playful re-introduced to the red nose, even for more experianced students. We return to our humble roots, to our beginners mind.
There will be a follow up workshop (non-residential) on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st July 2019 entitled ‘Deepening Our Practise’. The fee is £130.
Through a variety of exercises and mindful movement. we will explore the beautiful heart space of the Sacred Clown.

The workshops are led by Reuben Kay who teaches the art of mindful communication through presence, mime, play, improvisation, dance, movement, the clowns nose, being still, clown poetry, clowning individually, in pairs and in small groups.
The workshops are designed for the student to develop a sense of presence and personal awareness.
With an emphasis on deepening ones own practice through mindful movement and by giving ourselves space to have a quiet moment. We create the right intention and we may begin to clear away the everyday clutter of the mind thus leading to more clarity. Its an organic approach looking at bringing the sacred flow in our life.

Some come for one workshop, others may come for several years gently immersing themselves. For some people the journey of the Sacred Clown is an ongoing learning process.
