Lesley Quilty (Clown Doctor)

Patch Adams' 2-day "Loving Work - Loving Play" event will be followed by an optional third day: a fun, experiential clown workshop, led by resident Findhorn Community clown and professional clown doctor, Lesley Quilty.

Having heard about and been inspired by Patch's work as a clown doctor, this follow-on day will give you the chance to have a go yourself. Experience the playful, authentic, connected tenderness and joy of a clown from the inside out. There will be no pressure to entertain or be funny – just a willingness to play.

Price: £100 residential - includes the workshop, one night's accommodation and all meals.
         £60 non-residential - includes the workshop and meals only.
