Improv and mindfulness may appear to be at odds from the outside. Improv conjures up images of liveliness and movement. Mindfulness, on the other hand, evokes peace and stillness. From a practitioner’s inside perspective, however, the two practices have profound similarities in cultivating awareness of the present moment experience with openness, curiosity, acceptance, and non-egoic kindness.

Improv is an excellent sandbox for learning to see our judgments, as well as exploring identity and the self. As a form of relational mindfulness, improv can be a bridge for taking our practice off the cushion and into daily life. Both practices synergistically lead to more ease, joy, and freedom in our lives, as we stop taking ourselves and not-selves too seriously.

Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this day for $45.
