This five day workshop experience will start Thursday, June 7, 2018 through Tuesday morning, June 12, 2018. The program (June 8 - 11) is being led by sacred clown teacher and therapeutic clown practitioner, Reuben Kay from England. Being introduced to the red nose in 1995, clown practice and playful experiences of others are a continuing inspiration.

Since 2005, he has facilitated workshops (various forms) of clown and he has performed within a wide variety of venues including health care settings and street theatre.

Over the four days of our June program, we will explore the essence of
being human and holding our space, which lies at the heart of sacred

Each day, beginning on June 8th, we will have about 6 hours or more of workshop time in which we will explore simplicity and innocence in play, improvisation in clowning and mime, poetry in movement and dance, loving kindness meditation and presence.

We will also include using our breath and simple bodywork exercises to
bring awareness of the now. In this manner, Reuben will introduce
you to the red nose in the tradition of the sacred clown.

During the five days, as a group, we will take care to be mindful even during meal preparation, eating together, fire side conversations, and we will practise mindfully outside in nature whenever possible.

The facility is located on 5 acres of waterfront, nestled in the Upper Gatineau wilderness of Quebec Canada. The time that you spend with us includes access to trails, canoes, swimming, rock hunting, a library full of inspirational books on the subject of clown, and more.

Comments from previous students of Reuben:

“Wow! Fantastic! Wonderful! Allowed me to play
innocently. Something I don't get to do too often
in the real world. I want more”

“A very inspiring experience.”
