Play It Forward
How we can reach out in our most vulnerable moments, turn mistakes into opportunities, and ultimately find joy and play when we are at a loss or don't know what to do next?
Kali creates a space for participants to remember the rejuvenating sensations of compassion and creativity through movement, story, connection, and collaboration. She has done this work with people throughout the United States and in Italy, Brazil, Guatemala, and El Salvador.
Kali Quinn is enthusiastically ready to engage with your school or business by facilitating a workshop, series, or by delivering a lecture or keynote speech, or to come to your home or bookstore to play an Evening of Compassionate Creativity.

Whether it be with someone one-on-one or with a group of 100, for an hour, for five weeks or a year, on-line or in-person, the following kinds of workshops, lectures, or combinations of these PLAY IT FORWARD options are available to you:
REJUVINATING PERSONALIZED CREATIVITY: Everyone has a creative muscle but sometimes it’s gotten out of shape or taken the back seat for a while. This playful workshop allows participants to remember the rejuvenating sensation of creativity through simple story-based exercises and inspirational ways of interacting.
INTER-GENERATIONAL STORYTELLING: We need one another to see ourselves as hero’s of our own story. This sharing allows for memories to be reframed in a valuable way, for learning and empathy to take shape, and to empower both the storyteller and listener.
MOVING ALONG FROM THE HEAD, HEART & GUT: Learning to relate from these three different centers helps to express more clearly with defined intentions and needs. This workshop encourages participants to have more awareness and choice around the differences between thinking, feeling, and doing, what story their body is telling others, and how they want to balance of work, play, and love in their own lives.
PHYSICAL & MUSICAL PLAY: When we have the time and space to make stuff up without major consequences of right and wrong or fear of failure, we discover ways of being and communicating that feel natural and unique to our own points of view. This workshops enables participants to remember these childhood tools and learn how to apply them within their adult life, especially in moments where improvisation is essential.
LIKE A CLOWN: Throughout history, ever culture has a kind of fool or trickster – one who’s responsibility it is to make other laugh and encourage celebration of the complexities of life. This workshop looks at how we can reach out in our most vulnerable moments, turn mistakes into opportunities, and ultimately find joy and play amidst destruction and loss.
MASK, MOVEMENT, & MAYHEM: Throughout time, masks have been used as a buffer that allows us liberate our expression to the outside world. This workshop invites participants to expand their physical, vocal, and creative range beyond what they ever thought was possible and to delight in being seen differently or thinking from another point of view.
Remember, it is always possible for Kali to create a more specific workshop or on-going series for you or group that is directly tailored to your needs or interests!
