Learn introductory circus skills including spinning plates, juggling and poi, with an emphasis on experience and mindful participation.
Circus skills are fantastic escapism, but they can also be used as a stress reliever, relaxation technique, distraction, and to help you focus on the present moment.
Juggling in particular can help quickly clear a crowded mind — the practice takes such intense focus that you simply have no capacity to ruminate, catastrophize or overthink at the same time. In contrast, a skill like poi is well suited to act as self-soothe.
A great compliment to DBT. Clowns not included.
