An opportunity to practice C.I. and experiment with co-creating the CI environment.

We practice care. Care guides our ability to create a safe and, therefore, potent container to explore the radical act of improvising while in contact. Care is primary!
1) Care for yourself. 2) Care for your immediate partner/s. 3) Care for the whole. Let curiosity about what it means to care guide your contribution to mutual well-being.
Ask for what you want/need! Refuse what you don’t want! If something is happening that doesn’t feel good, say so! The CI experience evolves according your participation.
Kneepads can be purchased for $20.
