PERFORMANCE & CREATIVITY

Session 6 invites participants to practice the pause: giving our brains time to catch up, and move from reactivity to responsibility. This session focuses on making the choice about how to respond to life’s events with acceptance, non-judgement and patience. Without past experiences colouring our reactions and expectations, responses are more clear-eyed and fair, allowing for more honest actions and communications. This pause between impulse and action is fruitful ground for creativity, as it breaks established patterns to allow new thinking to blossom, and performance to change.
