Barbara’s Rambunctious Writing and other spontaneity workshops and retreats emerged from her decision to stop being a serious cookie! Seeking to crack the shell on her silliness Barbara entered comedy classes and was, with her classmates, gobsmacked at their creativity and wittiness. Where did it come from? By using simple structures to give the left brain a holiday and practicing the comedy principles–saying YES to, instead of blocking, the offer of the moment–unexpected, unplanned, unknown, extraordinary, imaginative, words and ideas burst forth. Barbara’s writing, teaching and life changed. For over 20 years her passion has been helping others practice “The Power of Now” through Rambunctious Writing and other avenues–while laughing a lot!
