New Improv for Gifted Adults group launches on October 17! Click this link to register today.
Improv continues to impress me in the subtle and profound ways it establishes quick, deep connections among people who don’t know each other. Gifted participants are surprised at how game-based mirroring and supportive structure so quickly allow them to feel socially secure. I want every gifted person on the planet to try this at least once, so they can know how it feels to be in a room of peers who equally intense lives.
Feel an unusual-to-you sense of attunement in a group of neuro-atypical people like you. Come unmasked. Discover yourself in community and in play. Transform perfectionism through spontaneity. Transcend social defenses through trust in your actual peers.
Improv is a unique and hilariously effective avenue for gifted self-development. It’s a place for gifted people to show up openly – laughing together and supporting each other. It’s a place where you’ll be accurately mirrored, where you can feel secure.
I am working with Lisa Bany, Chief Improv Officer of Improv Therapy Group, to develop an improv curriculum focused on the needs of gifted adults. Register here.
This class offers a four-week experience in which we come together (on zoom) with our gifted peers to explore, experiment, and play. Through Improv games and exercises we cultivate openness & playfulness, relaxation & self-care, emotional intelligence & empathy, and creative storytelling & expression. On Sundays, October 17, 24, 31 and November 7, each class will be held at 1pm Eastern time and lasts 75-90 minutes. The cost for the group is $195.
Together, we practice spontaneous group creativity and connection. A core improv principle is the concept of “Yes, And”. This simple, profound concept gives us a chance to explore parts of ourselves, our minds, and our relationships that gifted people don’t get to do often enough, if at all. Imagine a room full of gifted people, relaxed and laughing together – true social mirroring. It provokes a genuine sense of social safety, and that means you get to be yourself, co-create, grow, and play.
Here are some examples of our weekly themes:
Magic words — improv for acknowledging the realities of others, letting ideas be heard, and encouraging spontaneous and exploratory expression
In the now — improv for active listening and reacting in the moment
Perfect is boring — improv for letting go of being right and in control, and enjoying what is imperfectly created
Brain yoga — improv for challenging our habitual ways of thinking and opening up new cognitive pathways
Repeal inhibition – Improv for social openness and playfulness
Heal thyself — Improv for relaxing and taking care of yourself
I second that emotion — Improv for amping up emotional intelligence and empathy
Our stories, ourselves — Improv for creative storytelling and expression
