THIS WEEK'S TALK

JUST FOR FUN
Inviting play into your everyday life

Play is a serious matter indeed! Why? Because when you are playing you are in touch with your spontaneity, your imagination and your creativity. These three things help you to connect to yourself and others in profound and unexpected ways:

 

  • Spontaneity can free us from old and unhelpful patterns of behaviour

  • Imagination shows us paths that lead beyond our perceived limitations

  • Creativity encourages us to expand, grow and actually do the changes we want

 

In this talk Lizzie will be considering the nature of play, its purpose, it’s healing properties, it’s power, what holds us back and most important of all she will get you thinking about how to make play a part of your everyday life and feel the benefits.

 

 

Speaker: Lizzie Cummings

Lizzie is a drama and movement therapist and has worked for the past 18 years in the NHS adult mental health sector, schools and private practice. For fun she sings in a jazz band, goes dancing and writes terrible poetry (for her eyes only!) She also likes trying out new recipes on her friends and is grateful for their – ahem – appreciation!
