"To be or to Be"
26-31 July 2015
The clown is a master in the art of BEING.
Fully present, open and in wonder of whatever occurs in the open space of ‘now’. With curiosity and an open hart he embraces life in all aspects.
Clowning is not about acting. It’s not about too big shoes and silly jokes.
It’s an invitation to connect to yourself and to others, embrace whatever there is and play with it.
The clown brings us back to our essence. To the freedom, love, openness, connection and playfulness which is our true nature.
At the same time the clown gives us the opportunity to play with all the aspects that hold us back to be fully present: our fears, our expectations, and our defence mechanisms. By inviting that aspects within us as well and by playing with them, they lose their seriousness.
This week is a great possibility to take a deep dive into yourself. To feel, to connect, to give yourself space, to let your energy flow again, and last but for sure not at least: to have a lot of fun together.
No experience whatsoever is needed.
Looking forward to meeting and playing with you!

We will work all mornings, and then either in the afternoon or in the evening. So that you also have time to relax and go for a swim in the afternoon.
On Wednesday we only work in the morning so you also have a chance to go for a trip (for example to Gdansk), or just to rest.
We will also have ‘sharing time’ every day.
