“Heal-Arity” is a fun filled week-long immersion in the universe of the Clown, especially created by MeDi Clown Academy, to introduce the participants into the art and profession of medical clowning.

The two main goals of this workshop are to guide the participants into a self-journey discovering their unique clown-personality; and the application of this work in healthcare, education and corporate environments.

To this end, we have designed an intensive integrated 110 hour programme incorporating physical, mental and creative activities and exercises.

We will explore ritual, ceremony and theatre techniques, building day by day upon them through improvisation, imagination, puppetry, magic, music, movement, non-verbal storytelling, play, embodying dreams and different dimensions. We will also share case studies to show how we have applied all of these tools and techniques in real life situations. And, as part of the training, we will facilitate a 14 hours Certified Laughter Yoga Leader Training.

To compliment this process of self-expression, we will guide the participants in exercises to embody their dreams and encourage and support each participant to manifest their vision.

Heal-arity takes place in Adishakti Laboratory, a beautiful and special place in South India, dedicated to Arts and research. The campus, surrounded by nature, offers the best conditions and facilities for this residential workshop.

This introductory immersion training is open to everyone: artists, educators, healthcare professionals and those interested in health and wellbeing. This workshop is a prerequisite for the Professional MeDi Clown Certificate Training Program.

What we will do?

Experiential sessions are filled laughter, fun and play as well as very profound and poignant moments. Sessions will include short discussion, relevant case studies, applied research, applications of techniques learned and reflective practice. Participants will also journal.

Auroville

Auroville is a universal township in the making for a population of up to 50,000 people from around the world. The concept – an ideal township devoted to an experiment in human unity – came to the Mother as early as the 1930s. In the mid 1960s the concept was developed and put before the Govt. of India, who gave their backing. In 1966 UNESCO passed a unanimous resolution commending it as a project of importance to the future of humanity.

The purpose of Auroville is to realise human unity – in diversity. Today Auroville is recognised as the first and only internationally endorsed ongoing experiment in human unity and transformation of consciousness, also concerned with – and practically researching into – sustainable living and the future cultural, environmental, social and spiritual needs of mankind.
