I'm home and feeling warm, fuzzy & satiated; and still connected to this amazing community of talented, generous, delightful people.

Thank you all sooooooooo much for the rich contributions, both large and small.

Inhaling, exhaling.... smiling.

Thank you all so much for this experience.  It was my first AIN and my first open space and it was wonderful. 

I feel like my eyes have been opened and my ass has been goosed.

This was a truly enjoyable and enlightening experience for me.  I feel much better prepared to follow my bliss of sharing the power of improv practice with non-performers.  I made many wonderful new contacts with brilliant, generous people and I came away with an even greater appreciation for these transformational teachings. Thank you seems so very inadequate.  I'm looking forward to finding ways that I can give back to this community.  :) xoxox

Rubbing Shoulders / Touch Forehead and Nose

--I'm going to try the exercise we did with my students tomorrow. I'm trying to remember what the signs said. Do you remember? "Welcome to AIN. something something  something rub shoulders"  -- if anyone remembers, let me know, otherwise I'm going to make it up!!!

If anyone found a copy of the book by Lenny Ravitch, "Something Happend on the Way to Enlightenment". with an inscription to "Robert" I would consider it a great blessing if it could be mailed to 164 4th STreet, #8, Atlanta, GA USA, 30308. Thanks to all.

AIN External Website

We have created and launched a new website to promote Applied Improvisation to prospective clients -

As you know, we already have a great website for talking to each other: this new site is for us to talk to the world, letting people know the value that AI practitioners can bring to organisations and communities, as trainers, facilitators and inspirers of creativity. It also has a sensational new logo, thanks to our very own Bård Brænde.

Please take a look here, let us know how to improve the site, and recommend it to any potential clients you can think of.  If you’d like to be listed on the site as a Practitioner, then check out the sign-up process on the discussion linked to this email here.
