What we're about

Meetups are at Wesley Chapel, 1290 Folsom St, Boulder, CO. Free parking, and the entrance, are at the rear of the building. Our meetups are upstairs in the theater.

Please note that attendance is limited to the number of people who RSVP'ed for the meetup. If you RSVP "yes," you have committed to attending the meetup. If you find that you cannot attend the meetup, please change your RSVP to "not attending" so that people on the wait list will be able to attend.

If you come a little late, we might be meditating. Just come in and have a seat. If we have already begun improv, please join us!
This group explores the relationship between mindfulness and improvisational theater (“Improv”). Improv involves challenging your comfort zone, being in the now, relinquishing your ego, and developing the confidence to just jump in. As such, it involves us in the experience of the Now, much like our experience of other mindfulness practices.
You don't need any experience in improv or any mindfulness practices. You just need to be curious!
We will be playing improv games, performing scenes, and doing other exercises that explore the experience of being confidently in the Now, while also learning to extend that experience into being able to play well with others -- even when not improvising. We begin each meetup with a brief period of sitting meditation, then ask you to pay attention to a different aspect each meetup as we do exercises and scenes, and briefly share discoveries.

We especially encourage those interested in mindfulness who are a bit shy, and who have no experience in either improv or theater. Come learn a fun and very useful extension to your current practice, and meet like-minded new friends! And it's a lot of fun!

If you are an experienced improviser, come try out a different way to approach your art. You might be surprised at how your skillset can be expanded.

We're going to get together for a couple of hours to explore the connection between improv and mindfulness by playing improv games and doing improv exercises connected to being in the Now, giving up our egos, and developing the confidence to just jump in! We'll start with some meditation, do some warm up exercises, games, and improvise some scenes. We'll ask you to pay attention to a different aspect each night. It's recommended that you bring your own water. Note that we start at 6:45 pm with meditation. If you come late, you can still join us for meditation. Please shut the back door of the building quietly when you enter. Be especially quiet if you come before 6:30 pm, because there is a yoga group that precedes us on the first floor.
