The Play mindset allows us to have an evolving mindset. Throughout these Play sessions we will explore what B4 The Other’s Pedagogy Of Play is, how it can open up the participants point of view of their lives, and the seen/unseen opportunities before them.
Play as an idea focuses on Great Effort, Conscious Vulnerability, Bold Choice, Grounded Acceptance, Grateful Surrender, and Easeful Buoyancy. Each week we will explore one of these six key components of play to support your personal play revolution. We do not see them as “pillars” because they are not immovable. We do see these six components as points on a horizon. They offer us a foundational level of ease in every situation. The idea creates our reality, not the other way around.
“Unused creativity is not benign. It metastasizes. It turns into grief, rage, sorrow, shame.”
In our culture, the act of Play is viewed as inconsequential, time wasting and frivolous. It is something only children are allowed and capable of doing as they hold a value that is “less than” adults.
For too long, the act of Play has been considered the only definition. B4 The Other believes the idea of Play holds the truth to be an evolutionary tool. Through the act of Play, the idea of Play can be explored in order to find a more expansive reality, clearly defined relationships/roles, and an openness to abundant possibilities.
Living in a time of so many “unknowns”, B4 The Other would love to offer you an abundance of opportunities and options through our Pedagogy of Play. Only then can we allow the unknown to engage us by seeing that we are not victims to our choices, we create them.
B4 The Other Creations strives to build stronger communities by holding space for a universal experience through the Pedagogy of Play. Changing the language to change the story by deep diving into the core values of effort, choice, buoyancy, generosity, and vulnerability. Paving a path of Vibrational Activism in our everyday world.
We can not promise what your exact experience will be. We can promise intentional facilitation to hold your personal Play revolution. A variety of skills to help you learn and unlearn what you know to be true about yourself, your community, and your future. We reinforce the opportunity to expand our shared capacity for wonder.
