Description

Years of education, responsibility, and stress have turned a lot of us into people who seem almost afraid to have a good time, look silly, get dirty, or be outrageous. This is our chance to do something about it.

In this workshop with Joe Killian, Omega’s favorite play-philosopher, we reverse the aging process by recapturing what we knew how to do best as kids: play. We learn and re-learn all sorts of games—new games and old standards, including how to juggle; how to trip and fall with grace; 101 variations of emotionally safe dodge ball; and how to look dignified while being totally out of control on a water slide.

We also engage in deep discussions, weird explorations, and immature raids on the kids’ camps in order to bypass the neurotic traps we have set for ourselves—the traps that keep us from experiencing the simple and profound joy of everyday life.
