K2428-2: CLOWN & THE ART OF MINDFULNESS (All ages over 18)

11.07.2024 - 14.07.2024

Suitable for all with an interest in how the practice of mindfulness and the art of improvised clowning go hand in hand. No experience of either is necessary - perhaps even helpful!

When?
18-21 April
28 November - 1 December

Language?
German & English

What?

Pausing, calming down, being fully present in every moment of our lives - these are perfect companions on the path to getting to know your "inner clown".

This clown has nothing in common with the clown in the circus arena. It is the free, spontaneous and playful part of you that lets go of the compulsion to be clever or to do it "right" - just as your "Buddha nature" accepts the world without judgement and comparison.

With the help of games and short improvisations we learn to let go of our compulsion to control. With the help of mindful breathing, mindful movement and deep listening, we develop our ability to live in the present moment - in the place where we are truly alive. No previous experience is necessary for this course.
