PRESENCE WORKSHOP in TORONTO
with John Beale
August 28th, 29th and 30th
Friday 6pm-9pm and Saturday and Sunday 11am -5pm
A study of showing up, being open, sensitive, vulnerable, ridiculous and human, finding your special quality that connects you to others, opening a channel between you and them, being present and engaging. This work helps us get unstuck. It teaches us to listen, to re-discover play, not to push too much or shy away but to let go and be attuned to the moment. To be, not do. Although derived from performance training this is a rudimentary practice for anyone. New and returning students work side by side. Each time the work is revisited something new is found. The skills learned can be applied anywhere. For performers and non-performers.
"With this work people have to find a way of being beautiful and surprising... and by beautiful I mean being in the grip of pleasure or freedom".

Performers and non-performers, actors, dancers, clowns, filmmakers, painters, musicians, writers, stand-up comics, poets, teachers, acrobats, lawyers, doctors, public speakers, life coaches, facilitators, administrators, toy-makers, surfers, rocket-scientists, computer programmers, inventors, Feldenkrais practitioners, massage therapists, chefs, event planners, mindfulness practitioners, psychotherapists, social workers, university professors and many others.
