Marc's Reflection on Aikido & True Play

Play PENs

July 15, 2013 · No Comments

My reflection on  Play PENs (Playful Participatory Embodiment Networks) and wellbeing:

An appreciative approach to exploration makes a big difference.

“Play”, “participation” and “embodiment” are all words pointing to the same thing. “Play” is critical as it clarifies that this is not violent nor coerced participation and that the affect is positive rather than negative or fear-based.

Nets or webs that work and are playful are necessarily voluntary and therefore held together by personally meaningful attractors–shared care and resonance among participants.

In sharing our past experiences of wellbeing, we discover that we are deeply connected with the outdoors, with the sensory, sensuous experience of nature.

In my own past, the human network or connections associated with wellbeing have been non-judgmental—accepting, calling for no pretense.

The technology for Play PENs is widely available—anyone with a smart phone. The key is the nature of the attractor and participating with playful attitude.
