I’ve launched this new experiment--a monthly playgroup for adults.
So often as children we are told to “go play” to get out of the way of adults; and “quiet down! not here.” We learn that play is only allowed at certain times and in places and is only for certain people. Overtime, we come to believe it’s not okay to play.
Well I’m bringing play back for adults. I want to debunk this myth AND to demonstrate that there is great wisdom and great possibility inherent in play. Yes, even for adults.
Aside from simply being fun, I believe play is a pathway from which we can open ourselves to being with our most painful and biggest challenges, whether it be relationships, grappling with the state of humanity, or feeling debilitated from any or all of it.
My theory is that a playful spirit allows us to view such challenges and complexities from a place of curiosity and expanse rather than from the little diorama box of our conditioned mind and previously set rules. By creating space to play, we build our playful spirit muscle, if you will, so it becomes more available as a choice in our daily lives.
