“The truth is that play seems to be one of the most advanced methods nature has invented to allow a complex brain to create itself.”
― Stuart Brown, Play: How It Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination,
and Invigorates the Soul
Summer is upon us, and for many it is a time to slow down, unwind, unplug, and play. In its own unique way, play is a sacred art of engagement.
It engages our imagination, softens our hard places, and opens our hearts.
Research has shown that play can help us sleep sounder, relieves stress, nurtures our creativity, creates connection, builds our confidence and our resilience. Play supports brain function and can liberate us from our perfectionism or outgrown roles.
Play can shift our perception; it can heal as it calls us into
the present moment.
With that in mind, why not come to Saint Francis’s new
Weekly Summer Board Game Gathering!
Every Wednesday at 2:00 pm
in Ravenscroft Hall.
