July 31 – Playing with Life’s Deepest Questions: The Deep Play Institute

with Aaron Finbloom, PhD and Netta Sadovsky, MFA, LSW

This lecture will cover the Deep Play Institute’s approach to playing with life’s deepest questions. Aaron and Netta will describe the work they did with a retreat group at the Guild, and they will facilitate interactive activities to give the audience a first-hand taste of what their work is like. The Deep Play Institute’s mission is to use play to bring us into an open-hearted, curious process of discovery of what it means to exist.  They use play to try to deepen the connection and curiosity to all parts of self, others, and the world.

This lecture is part of the Rochester Folk Art Guild’s Lecture on the Lawn Series at their East Hill Farm, 1445 Upper Hill Road, Middlesex, NY 14507 on June 12, July 31, August 21, and September 11. Lectures will take place on Sunday afternoons at 2:00 pm and will feature local artists, scientists, and thought leaders. This is a continuation from the 2021 series, which focused on good environmental citizenship. See https://www.folkartguild.org/lol/ for information about other lectures in the series.

Lectures take place rain or shine. We will meet inside if it rains. All lectures will last approximately one hour. There will be opportunities to interact, with questions welcome and participation invited. Wooden benches and folding chairs are provided; your favorite lawn chair is welcome. The Lecture on the Lawn series is free to the public, but donations are appreciated. At the conclusion of each lecture, attendees are invited to browse the beautiful crafts created onsite and by local artists, which are on display in the East Hill Gallery.
