Positive Creativity Playshop Mind Chatter edition: Thriving Resiliently with Positive Psychology and Creative Play
Time & Location
About the Event
Our Positive Creativity Playshop July theme is mind chatter, mad hatters, jibber jabber, and silly banter!
Together we will use creative play and expression in innovative ways to explore thought patterns and inner dialogue, especially our ever-present friend/enemy Mind Chatter! Playing with voice, music, movement, theater games, and art we will explore the 4 main categories of our thoughts, 3 common cognitive distortions, and learn how to apply positive psychology tools to gently and kindfully manage those annoying and often self-sabotaging mind chatter judgements. If you have ever felt self-conscious in your life or like negative self-thoughts are always judging you...this is the topic for you!
In times of stress we are often in reactive and survival mode with negative thoughts so much that we can't access our best selves. We can do better! If you are feeling cranky, judgemental, and discouraged lately or just wondering how to process it all, you are not alone. Here's your chance to work through some tension, manage inner chatter, process negative thoughts, gain insights through creative expression, and get your sillies out. Although you can’t remove all negativity from your life, you can learn how to 'stress well' using resilience tools and creative play with art, dance, and music games.
Come play! In this informal FREE zoom gathering we can explore creative activities and positive psychology skills mixed together to bring you Mental Mastery. It's time to amp up your grit and adaptability! Please click READ MORE!
During this Resilience Mastery Pop-Up, we'll practice resilience tools to help improve our ability to manage uncertainty and challenges and we will play with fun creative collective bonding activities that build what is called collective effervescence. Using creative expression in playful ways will lead us into art making so be sure to have paper and any colors of pens, crayons, or markers available. We’ll also be playing with creative sound making and vocal explorations such as conversations of gibberish, imagining sound qualities of found objects, and playing with rhythms.
No prior experience needed, of course! Silly hats and props are warmly welcome and bring along any instruments you may have too. Pots and pans and found objects definitely count as instruments!
