More about you: (Short Bio or any other details you'd like people to know)
I am committed to being part of the change I wish to see in the world.

My foundation is my partner and my kids. If that is not healthy and thriving, then nothing else I do matters.

My deep integrity starts there and spreads into the relationships I have with other people and the more than human world.

I thrive in uncertainty and go into pain and challenges to discover the gifts inside and on the other side.

And I love to play.
I need help with...
Finding adults who can be role models and mentors for young people. These adults will be in their journey of discovering what passionate aliveness is. They will be living out loud while connected to their heart and deep self.

You have from now until the Monday, May 11th to make a (or several) delightful offers for our tribe’s conference. Again, ’Back to Nature’ is our theme for this 2015 AIN conference. Life on earth is creative, playful, and always improvising. In that sense, being connected to nature is being connected to our whole being, with all of our creative, playful and improvisational capacities. How does your work connect with that?

More info can be found on the AIN Conference Website


Time: September 24, 2015 at 5pm toSeptember 27, 2015 at 5pm

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.
