Discovering the Beauty of Life as Improvisational Process with Stephen Nachmanovitch and Cathy Rose Salit

Scandinavia House, 58 Park Ave. (betw. 37-38 St.) 
Registration: $135 by July 22; $150 after July 22.
Stephen Nachmanovitch's Free Play and Cathy Salit's Becoming Principle grew out of more than two decades of bringing artistic and creative improvisation into everyday life. Along the way they both discovered that "in a minute" we can experience life as process and find beauty in our imperfections, flaws and failures.  Join these two sought-after creativity experts for an all-day experiential workshop and discover the beauty of life as improvisational process.

Try out new ways of listening, talking, being. Suspend judgment. Change your relationship to mistakes and failures. Be free of the limits of problem-solution thinking. Discover what we can create when we are not bound by predefined purposes.
