OTOA CLP

2-DAY INTENSIVE

Overview

The OTOA CLP 2-Day Intensive lays the foundation for participants to begin their own unique journey into discovering the benefits of a Creative Life Practice, by introducing them to CLP’s 6 Aspects for Creative Influence through dialogue, discussion, exercises and observation.

OTOA CLP Intensive is an introduction to principles based upon the widely recognized OTOA technique, and intended to bring a richer engagement with your present and a more rewarding future.

What to Expect

Class participation includes individual and group exercises and observation.
Exercises are followed by class discussion and exchange.

Participants will be asked to do some simple preparatory reading and writing before the workshop, as well as creative “homework” during the evening between sessions.
It is advised to set aside at least 60-90 minutes for these modest assignments.

Some physical movement will be encouraged, but nothing strenuous
or beyond the capacity of the participant’s abilities or level of comfort.

There will be a 20minute break each day. Participants are encouraged to bring their own food and beverage or snacks, so that they can make the most out of their break time.
