The focus of the third part of our exploration will be “loving the world.”

The current climate has filled our lives with many faces of fear but it is important to remember that most of these are of our own making. The birch tree outside my window is still most sovereignly herself, brimming with sap, glittering in her green garments and gloriously unaffected by all my angst to stay alive.  Yes, we have inexcusably damaged this world, robbing it, some say, of half its vitality and yet in spite of this Nature goes on giving.

It is this incomprehensible energy, call it ‘life force,’ call it ‘presence,’ call it ‘love,’ that will be the centre of our work. Bring the stories of what you love about this world, even the things that you hold dear and we will see what deeper magic and merriment the clowns can bring to them.

“If some longing goes unmet, don’t be astonished. We call that Life” Anna Freud

If you’re looking for some re-connection in these tumultuous times this course will be a lifeline. This course is part 3 of a three part course. You are welcome to join at any stage with or without previous experience of storytelling or clowning.

The group is limited to 14
