Play and Change ~ Using Play as a Tool for Change


Play is a basic human need but it is also something we sometimes put on the back burner. Our play can help us make changes with more ease, while affording us the opportunity to feel safe, engage creatively and focus our attention in healthy and meaningful ways. Explore how play can help you thrive and give rise to new opportunities when change occurs in your life. Learn how you can use play to:


  • make lifestyle changes with more ease.
  • help you thrive when change occurs in your life.
  • increase creativity, joy and connection.
  • not take life so seriously all the time!


This interactive workshop can be customized for you or your organization. Please contact me here if you would like more information.

What if your leadership style was an artichoke? Would it be easy to get to the heart of the matter?
