A workshop of the Creative Catalyst Series

Photo credit: Themis Gkion, Sept 2018

Join Bangalore-based facilitator, Nilisha Mohapatra, to learn how to use PYE’s 5 Power Tools to add depth and impact to your work with groups—and to increase your own wellness. You’ll learn how to integrate the 5 Power Tools–imagination, body, voice, rhythm, and mirroring—into existing activities as well as how to use them to design new activities. You’ll also learn why these 5 Power Tools have such a powerfully positive effect on our emotions and our physical wellbeing. Nilisha will be guiding us to learn how to apply these power tools in our work with others as well as how to integrate them into our personal lives to increase our own sense of well being.

Workshop Fee

Our first 11 weeks of the Creative Catalyst Workshops were made possible thanks to the Garneau Nicon Family Foundation in Seattle. To support these workshops going forward, we have established a sliding scale registration fee structure in which you choose a fee that is possible for you. To provide equal access to all, we have included an option of attending the workshop for free. Please help us keep this series going by paying what you can! Our cost per person is $15.00 USD.

“The Live Forum gives me the chance to reflect on my facilitation work with a community of other practitioners. To be able to work through successes and failures, through case studies and examples with others, has allowed me to continue learning and growing in my facilitation."

"The 'Live Forum' has been immensely helpful to me. My confidence as a facilitator has increased, my connection to the greater community has grown, and I have learned so much.”

“The 'Live Forum' helps me feel connected to other social artists and deepen my practice. They understand me in a way that no one else does! I get to be celebrated and supported, and I think through the biggest issues in my work.”
