The Cauldron Ongoing, 2-3 months, Sign-up by January 30th
A cauldron is a large cooking pot used for brewing spells, magic, soups, and other delicious things. It is a container for testing and tasting. The Deep Play Institute’s “The Cauldron” is an opportunity to engage in this kind of living experiment by creating a one-on-one practice between yourself and another. Perhaps you are an artist with a relational, somatic or performative practice; how would your practice look when shifted into a one-on-one container? Perhaps you are a coach, therapist, counselor; what ways are you curious to expand or modify your practice that aren’t possible with a paying client in need of a trusted method? The emphasis in both cases is on playing with the relational container that exists between yourself and the other. This togetherness is your canvas, your laboratory, your testing-grounds.
The Cauldron will last for approximately 2-3 months, with weekly meetings encouraged. All participants will play the roles of both facilitator and participant. After each meeting, the participant will provide feedback, and the facilitator will use it along with their own experience to modify the practice for the next meeting. Throughout our months we will also have a couple of opportunities to meet as a larger group to discuss our findings and share our collective curiosities.
