July Practice: Play at Work
Play touches and stimulates vitality, awakening the whole person—mind and body, intelligence and creativity, spontaneity and intuition. —Viola Spolin
Do you shy away from “play” as something frivolous--not to be part of your work life? In the video below, Bill Vendley, our senior advisor for world religions, reminds us of the importance of play, and this from someone who dedicated his life's work to conflict resolution!
For this month’s practice, we invite you to play more! Consider how play enhances how you serve in your work, how it stimulates your imagination, releases stress, and contributes to your creativity. If you’re inclined, let us know in the comment section below how incorporating play has enhanced the quality of your work.
