Clown Healing

Who says your spiritual practice needs to be serious?

 

Friday 19 April – Sunday 21 April 2024

 

What if the spiritual path didn’t need to be serious all the time?

What if playfulness and creative self-expression could become the door to our self-knowledge?

Clown 
Healing is just that!

A creative, mindful, embodied, spiritual and therapeutic practice that delivers self-awareness and personal transformation while also being an enormous amount of fun.

What does it involve?

The workshop involves a mix of games, exercises, structures (and dancing) in which people learn to liberate themselves from their stiff adult personas and reconnect to their often long-lost playful inner child. As this connection develops, a bridge is formed between the inner child and the outer adult, allowing our lives to be lead with more silliness and celebration as well as a slowly growing vulnerability and authenticity.

Although clowning is ‘performative’, this workshop is not focussed on turning you into a good performer (although this is often a healthy by-product).

No experience of clowning is needed.

Clown Healing takes us down the garden path that leads into our inner world and helps us build a healthier balance between body, heart, mind and soul.

This workshop is for:

People who have done some inner therapeutic and spiritual work but want something with a twist.

*

People who have found their inner journey become a bit dry and yet another problem to be solved

*

People with big hearts, big smiles, and a belief that their inner child is as relevant to personal growth as their ‘outer yogi / monk / sannyasin / shaman aspect

*

The workshop is aimed at ordinary humans who want to release stress, open up to others, laugh out loud, build confidence, step out of their usual personas and rediscover their sense of aliveness, creativity and self-expression. And have a lot of fun

Do you feel like:

Taking yourself less seriously and escaping the rigidity of adult life?

Feeling free emotionally and expressing yourself without censure?

Likely structure for this weekend:

Friday evening: welcome, check-in, a bit of dance & connection with the group

Saturday morning : The Practice of Playfulness – group games and exercises to increase the silliness, remove the adult brain and develop the language of clowning. We will focus on inner qualities such as misbehaviour, exaggeration, spontaneity and imagination

Saturday afternoon : A bit more PoP if needed (above) before we move into Clowning Around. Discovering hidden personas and parts as we step out of our everyday selves and into the mystery of the clown-world.

Saturday evening: Clown Dance Party / Rock Star in your Bedroom – Clowning and dancing to some great rock and pop hits and learning how to embody the song

Sunday morning: Check in, followed by further Clown Scenes that help to wire the Clown Brain and / or if the weather is nice – a Clown walkabout –

Sunday afternoon- Check out, integration, next steps, feedback

There is a quality of consciousness that can absorb wisdom and foolishness and there is no contradiction. Then you can be sincere, but not serious. Then you are truthful, but not joyless.’ Osho

During this workshop you will:

✔️ Develop a sense of emotional freedom and emotional flexibility

✔️ Understand that your sense of humour is a vital lifeline in maintaining mental health and equilibrium

✔️ Experience the magic of Osho Leela; including connection, hugging, nature, sharing and wholesome vegetarian food.

‘I lost three things from your Clown Healing workshop- a stiff body, a numb heart and a disease called seriousness’

Ailon Freedman’s adult life has been devoted to the synthesis and marriage of spiritual practice with humour and playfulness.
He has worked as a yoga teacher, corporate facilitator and public speaking coach, as well as an artist, comedian, clown and drummer.
He has brought many of these elements together in his trainings Clown Healing, Speak from your Heart and Free your Inner Artist.
