As our lives become busier and more stressful, we often respond by putting on a mask of seriousness or professionalism that hides our true selves. When we get an opportunity to play it’s like we’re a different person, more free and alive. Our playful authentic selves take centre stage and we experience flow and joy.

Join Play Coach Portia Tung and Dr Paul Field, on a mini play adventure to explore our individual playful selves and discover more opportunities to become more of who you already are through a deeper connection to this essential part of ourselves. During this workshop, you'll explore the Mystery Masquerade, a medley of exercises and arts and crafts designed to get us thinking about our playful authentic selves.
