FOOL EXPRESSION

A short introduction

Are you longing for more play in your life ?

Learn to play the different aspects in you

And boost your life with energy and creativity

The Fool Expression is calling us as humans to access our Wild Truth, and learn to play with the masks in us, some known some not yet known.  It is a deeply playful and transformative process allowing the players to dive deeper into themselves through a safe connection with an audience. In this benevolent container, human nature is called to open, express and bring transformation and surprises ! This work comes from the lineage of Franki Anderson.

To be able to access our Inner Fool, to have the freedom of being fully alive at each moment and sharing that with an audience, we meet and learn to play with what is really present at each moment, with parts of us we know really well, parts we don’t. In front of our eyes players embody and play their masks for us. The ones who hold us back; the ones who long to show up; the one who keeps us small; the one who wants to share the uniqueness of our being… 

Everything is welcome and as we learn how to drop into what is really present, life’s mysterious expression fills us with aliveness and play. One foot in the known, one foot in the unknown.  The format is really gentle, smooth and progressive. It builds itself progressively on self-confidence and acceptance. From this place the play naturally starts…

In this introduction weekend, I will invite the participants to deepen their relationship with the body, learn how to harness energies that are present to create, learn the basics of the Fool’s Way on stage, explore and learn to play with the different masks/ personalities in ourselves as we step on a stage, and explore the relationship with an audience.

After the weekend 
– You will feel nourished and inspired by your Inner Player and your new ability to access and play with parts of yourself.
– You will feel supported by your connection with the audience
– And you will be ready to play more!

For who is this workshop ? You might be:

– a therapist and you want to find new embodied approach to feed your practice
– an artist and you want to enhance your creative expression and find new resources from which you can express yourself
– you are a parent and you want to find a way to be more playful and use this way to connect in new ways with your children
– an activist and you want to learn to harness the energy of all the aspects in you to enhance your daily life with energy
– you are a seeker, maybe in a transition time and want to find out more about yourself and what is next
– you are interested in personal development and spirituality and want to experience an embodied and fun way to touch the mystery inside of yourself

Welcome.

“I just wanted to say thanks again for facilitating this work for us over this last weekend.  I did find it challenging, but every time I met with the unknown I was surprised, delighted and had a great sense of relief. For me, the unknown has always been a frightening dark abyss, yet just with this taster intro weekend and stepping into the unknown a few times, my perspective has greatly shifted. It’s still scary yes, but instead of a dark, frightening, all-consuming abyss that must feel horrible and lets just not go there kind of place…  I see below me, looking off the ‘cliff of knowing’, or at least what my ego thinks I know, a vast colourful spectrum. Yes there is black, and also white, but there’s are so many different shades and hues you can reach, grasp and easily move in to.  Going through this process has been like a mirror for my life, and I’ve stopped myself so many times for fear of the unknown. And now is only the beginning, thank you for revealing and sharing this path.”

” The Fool Expression workshop was a chance to listen to parts of me I had buried for a long time and access both difficult and joyous emotions that I had neglected.  Christie is a patient and kind facilitator, whose presence soothes the inquietudes of the group from the outset of the retreat.  I left the workshop feeling more confident in showing my vulnerable sides and with tools that I could apply to my career, relationships and spirituality. I also recommend Christie’s method of play, for those who may have experimented with meditation and are seeking movement to compliment their practice.”

“I loved the Fool Expression workshop and Christie’s facilitation – It has definitely made life more fun – I have found more playfulness in everyday situations. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to bring more connection with any parts of their self which might enjoy being gently coaxed out of retirement! I would definitely love to do more.”
