The Imperative of Play

A Portal to Well-Being

September 21, 2022 6:00 PM Pacific

Most of us were trained, at least at some level, to believe that life is hard and to get ahead we needed to buckle down and work hard.  We were trained out of our natural capacities to move, play, wonder and discover new things in spacious timing.   The more I live and learn, the more I re-discover that PLAY is an imperative if I want to learn new stuff, create sustainable change, and enjoy my life.  PLAY may sometimes be childlike, but it is far from childish….in fact, science reveals that play is a required ingredient for a fulfilling life.

In this no-cost class:

  • learn about qualities of play that are required for healthy development
