who am i?

PlayFull Living has been created by me, Simon Magnus. I am a movement practitioner who specialises in working with groups to help each individual connect more deeply with their bodies and their own emotional realities. I have been creating transformational arts events in the UK for the past 20 years and since 2016 have been training in somatic trauma work.

 

I have worked around the world to help people connect intimately with themselves and others. My audiences are diverse: from children to those living with acute mental health issues; clowns to office workers in suits and ties. For me it is super important to create brave spaces where risks can be taken by participants within their own boundaries and choice.

 

Over the years I have been a theatre director of interactive, immersive and gaming experiences, written a graphic novel and facilitated (as well as trained facilitators of) many many workshops, events and retreats. At the heart of everything I’ve created has been a commitment to creativity, flow and play.

what is playFull living

At the heart of all creativity is the ability to play.

 

Play creates a space where mistakes can happen, where creativity can flourish and new ways of connecting can be discovered.

 

PlayFull Living invites you to bring a playful attitude into all aspects of life. Whether that is in our friendships, working lives or sexuality, we create a space where we fall back in love with playing creating a new way to be in the world, with ourselves and each other.

We play to discover, we play to find peace,

we play for the sake of playing.
