Are you willing to let go of trying to fit into an existing model that keeps generating struggle?

Does the concept of “playing through” rather than “working through” quicken your curiosity?

Are you ready to move into resonance and ease as your ground of being?

Would you be willing to live your life fully expressed–to let the universe play the instrument of you fully and with delight?

Are you willing to end your addiction to adrenaline and fear?

For years our introductory seminar Essentials focused on the skills to shift easily with body intelligence tools. We’re now exploring the possibility of living primarily in an evolutionary cycle of presencing, connecting and playing through collaboration and harmony. Yes, it’s possible to live free of blame and criticism, even inside your own head. Evolutionary Playground will focus on co-creation and resonance to expand solutions and new ways of living in this time of accelerated change.

The future is improvisation, and the future is here NOW. Humans are grappling with knowing too much about things over which we have little to no control (millions of bits and bytes), and knowing less and less about that which we DO have control, our bodies, experiences and choices. Welcoming rests in the heart of improvisation—saying yes to what is happening, what you are feeling, what you notice. When you welcome and include, you create a context where everything is fuel for aliveness and where each moment arises from turning toward, accepting, choosing and taking actions from your essence. You welcome others whose essence likes to dance with yours, and your co-created dance inspires others around you to join your personal evolutionary movement.

In Evolutionary Playground, you’ll get out of the head-centric orientation that has skewed reality for several millennia, and into your whole-body creativity, where you can make your dreams real in your life. You’ll learn to use simple, powerful skills, backed by scientific research, that take you from “working on” your life to consciously creating your life. EP is partly an adult playground where flow replaces struggle, and partly an unfolding of the new paradigm of body intelligence and co-creation. Evolutionary Playground opens up a new path through deep, experiential learning and discovery. You author your own map to create true love for yourself and others that you embody in your moment-to-moment choices.

Access to Essentials Online will be included for all who enroll in Evolutionary Playground. Essentials Online is a complete seminar, including workbook and over twenty videos, guiding you through the foundational practices that Katie has been teaching for a couple of decades.
