Participants will create their own slam poem using the elements of their own life stories and emotions. Together we will rediscover the parts of ourselves that are the most beautiful and yet the most hidden. This will feel like we're making something new; as if we're being innovative as we explore the terrain of emotion and use what we find in our poetry.

Service, like improv, is a co-creative, bi-directional process. So how can we take the principles behind improv and apply them to our understanding of service? In this workshop, participants will play a series of improv games that measurably strengthen their ability to send and receive information. At the end of the workshop, participants will understand, whether engaging community or improvising, the key to service is to listen, adapt, and respond. The more clearly we listen, the more appropriately we can adapt, the more successfully we can respond. No prior experience is necessary to sign-up. You don’t need to be a “funny person” or an actor. You don’t need to know any jokes. You just need to be brave, willing to learn, and willing to laugh.
