Mindful Play

PRESENTED ON FEB 21, 2016
IN ATLANTA @ VOL 28

Dee Wagner joins us to discuss mindful play and how it may be used in place of the third reaction style that follows the two known reactions "fight" & "flight"... The third is "shutdown" and is a reposnse when neither 'fight' not 'flight' are an option... Mindful play has its roots in the polyvagal theory and Dee walks us through responses, the nexus of her mindful play approach, and peppers it all with her own personal story.

Fight or Flight: A Pilgrimage of Self Discovery

BY DANELLE CLOUTIER
@ VOL 37 ON FEB 20, 2019

After a personally tough year, Danelle Cloutier decided to realize a recurring dream she's been having of being in a country where everything is completely foreign to her. Danelle's trip to Asia was an experience that was as enlightening as it was cathartic as it helped her realize what it means to be living with anxiety on a daily basis. Here in this 20x20 talk, she briefly shares her experience travelling in Asia and explains how she deals with the struggles of her life-long anxiety.

Danelle's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 37, on February 20 2019, at the Park Theatre.
