DAY RETREAT: Recess … for Grown-Upsplay

Saturday, August 1st, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

$60

Loretto Denver Center (Littleton, CO)

Are you consumed with what’s swirling around in your own head? Do you miss the period of your life when you could drop everything and play? Does being an adult feel like a lot of work and not much fun?

It’s time you went to recess!

At Recess for Grown-Ups, you’ll experience a hybrid of summer camp, a weekend retreat and a mini vacation – all within a 30-minute drive from downtown Denver. During your whole day of “time out,” you’ll explore the art of cooperative, immersive play and how it can lead to self-discovery and meaningful connections … and, of course, fun!

While at Recess for Grown-Ups, you will:

• Disconnect from digital devices;
• Reconnect to yourself and your fellow playmates;
• Have opportunities for your inner child to appear – and flourish;
• Create magic with your imagination;
• Be completely present in safe, supportive space;
• Say, “Yes!” to yourself and to your recess community.

Lunch, beverages, snacks, activities and activity materials are included in the adventure!

Well loosen the %*&@ up!

In this playshop, you’ll experience the art of cooperative, immersive play and how it can lead to self-discovery and meaningful connections … and, of course, fun! By combining improvisational theater techniques, mindfulness exercises and a little laughter yoga, you’ll experience nothing short of a recess for adults. Best of all, you can bring the games and activities into your home – and office – in order to encourage those around you to loosen the %*&@ up! It’s as easy as child’s play – for grown-ups!
