21st Century Integrative Practice Skills

As a University Professor responding to the needs of performing artists over several generations of students, the need for integrated practice of our work has proved invaluable – and I would say, imperative – in creating biopsychosocially whole relationships to our digital devices.
The needs that have appeared include: self-image and movement limited and based on imitating the screens: the need for additional training in creating and linking images, the building blocks of imagination; responding to digitally created and/or enhanced anxiety behaviors; and the ability to take charge of the tools we are using rather than to be ruled by them. The need for these practices goes beyond application to the performing arts to all areas of human endeavor.

Each of my Continuous Learning sessions will actively approach this topic from different perspectives, including tools, games, and practices for teaching; each session is both self-contained and part of a larger network of ideas.

Integration fosters relevance, creativity, everyday kindness to self, and supports each person’s agency in creating the life they want.

And always at the foundation of my work is PLAY, the human’s favorite way to learn.
