Match and Make Bigger

While connecting with someone try on an aspect of what they are doing and exaggerate it. This can be a fun way to bring playfulness into relating with a partner or children.

How to do it

  1. Invite a partner, friend or child to play/experiment with you.
  2. Take turns expressing about something you are interested in.
  3. Take on the posture, breathing pattern or body movements of the other person.
  4. Exaggerate them.
  5. Notice what insights/learning arise.


  • Brings new awareness of what is really happening for a person
  • Expands alignment, connection and play
  • Fosters lighthearted learning and discovery
