PLAY WITH PURPOSE
The concept of play goes far beyond just having fun and not having to be at work.
Play is essential to our well-being as humans, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It offers us the opportunity to explore and express our unique gifts, our passions, and our true nature.
Play is more about a state of mind than it is about the activity itself. For one person play comes from the adventure of mountain biking on unfamiliar trails while for another person play comes from being transported to another time and place through reading.
At the "Pinawa Playhouse" there are opportunities for so many different types of play. From push yourself out of your comfort zone adventures, to relaxing explorations, to creative expression, to games, to shared interactions with other like-spirited women.
There are a number of barriers that often get in the way of women participating in play:
fear of being judged as foolish/childish
fear of not being good at an activity
not having anyone to play with
not knowing what opportunities exist
not having the equipment and not wanting to buy "toys" that may only be used a few times
Our intention at the playhouse is to eliminate these barriers by provided the ideas, the location, the equipment, the playmates, and the guidance, all in a safe and supportive environment.
