CBD 2019: Playful Mindfulness: Improv as a joyful journey to confidence, calm and connection

With Lisa Rowland and Ted DesMaisons

Many know that mindfulness—paying attention to the present moment with curiosity and kindness—can reduce reactivity and create a steady sense of calm. Few would guess that improvisation, an art form known more for its energy and playfulness, does the same. Using safe, engaging interactive exercises from both worlds, Ted and Lisa will help you “play attention” in ways that develop resilient courage and genuine connection.

How to Feel as Bright and Capable as They Think You Are: Why Smart People Suffer from the Impostor Syndrome and How to Thrive in Spite of It

  • Do you chalk accomplishments up to luck, timing, or other external factors?
  • Do you agonize over even the smallest flaws in your work?
  • Are you crushed by constructive criticism?
  • Do you wonder if you’re really smart enough to be here?
