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.
