Play Retreat, with Anthea & Roberto


Adventures in Awareness and Creativity,

with Anthea Moys and Roberto Pombo



Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.
Pablo Picasso


The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct.
Carl Jung

PLAY! That's what this retreat is all about! We will learn all about play through the act of doing it; through playing!

Play is often considered a ‘waste of time’, a frivolous, useless activity reserved only for children. We are told to ‘Grow up! Get a job! And get serious about life.’ Increasingly, however, play is seen to be crucial, not just for children but for adults too - with special benefits for adults in the work place. And it’s never too late to play! Playing facilitates learning and individual growth. Playing is very much a part of any creative process. Play assists this process by flexing our imagination muscles: when we play we ‘pretend’, we ‘make believe’, which in turn expands our possibilities. In this way play creates fertile ground for new collaborations, new connections and new ideas to germinate.

Play often has a strong connection to humour and therefore, it is a fantastic generative, binding material that connects us as human beings. This retreat aims to create a safe space for us to play where we can be a bit silly, find our playful self and learn how to incorporate play into our daily lives more readily.


  • Learning about play: a short inspirational introductory talk about our personal relationship to play. Different elements of play that we will be exploring together: make believe and pretend play, day dreaming, risky play, ritualIised play, competitive game-play and more.
  • Mostly non-competitive games that are designed to challenge you to think less, laugh, learn and play more. Games that engage you in developing your quick responsive skills in creatively adapting to ever-changing situations through play.
  • Process driven play, surrendering to the process – creating and judging are two different, separate activities. The focus here will be on quantity and not quality.
  • Embodied and mindful practice.
  • Dressing up, hide and go seek, treasure hunts, zombie games, broken telephone, squash sardines, cat 'n mouse and more!
  • Singing games and a silent disco!
  • Automatic drawing and writing, playing with chance and the sub/unconscious when making. Many artists over the years have created numerous games that, when played, inspire chance ‘accidents’ in the process of making. We will be playing some of these games.
  • Adventuring and wandering into the wilderness of the Groot Marico as an explorer, investigator, quiet and gentle observer and responding creatively and curiously to what is there.
