Katie Goodman To Hold Women's Improv Retreat at Chico 1/21-22
Join "Broad Comedy" & "Spontaneous Combustibles" actress and teacher, Katie Goodman for this women's weekend retreat at Chico Hotsprings, January 21 - 22. The workshop will use improv, in Goodman's words, "to enable participants to learn self-trust, release themselves from judgment, take-risks and accept challenges, practice being present, and be flexible and open to change. The comedy improv exercises teach us to surrender to the moment, ridicule perfectionism, stay in beginner's mind, listen to our intuition, move with the flow and give up the goal." The retreat promises that all of what will be experienced in this workshop can be easily applied to our daily lives.
Comedy improv games are designed so that you don't have time to censor yourself, so that you are pulled automatically into the flow of the game. Learning to feel comfortable in this flow is important for those of us who don't operate this way on a daily basis. Improv takes us out of normal time and interactions and can be used as a diagnostic tool in discovering how we operate. We can look at ourselves, laugh at ourselves, and learn from others. We can then use the improv to practice changing our behaviors, such as bravely going for it, ignoring our inner critic, and being present.
The all-women workshop begins Saturday morning, January 21rd, at 9:00am and ends at 5:00pm, Sunday, January 22th. Chico Hot Springs is located one hour from Bozeman, Montana.
