Enroll in the CAST Weekend Workshop to empower your company’s growth. Discover the transformative insights that strengthen your corporate culture. Our workshop provides the ideal environment for cultivating proactivity, expression, love, enjoyment, and creativity, setting the stage for success, effective communication, and conflict resolution.

The CAST Workshop is a vibrant, innovative experience that embraces the principles of Open Collaboration. It seamlessly integrates elements such as personal sharing, improvisational theater, group visioning, socially conscious inquiry, music, movement, and pioneering models and concepts. Within this workshop, THE CAST embodies a transformative process that acknowledges the profound potential within each individual, including their truths, passions, visions, and stories.

When these elements are shared through creative outlets, the result is a profound transformation in the realm of Open Collaboration and personal expression. This transformation leads to a group that is more authentic, deeply connected, highly inspired, compassionate, and better equipped to collaborate effectively in pursuit of shared visions. Ultimately, this approach unites the most exceptional ideas on one platform, maximizing the potential for innovation and success.

C.A.S.T Proposal for ~Your Production Company~

Team Building through story-telling Principles

THE CAST:  Social Theater meets Open Collaboration meets Reality Creation to strengthen your organization for optimal performance, creativity & success!

“Community today requires a Social Theatre that tells a new story in a world in transition.”  Jean Houston.

Aim of Experience for the of your Production team of Artists:

This process is designed to catalyze the heart of your Production team into action-oriented reality creation which further synergies the intelligence, strengths and abilities of each member while creating a mutually co-supportive atmosphere of trust, understanding, interdependence and sharing.

What Happens at THE CAST Event?

The cast line-up includes combination of small and large circle exercises, methods of sharing passions and deeper truths, visioning and reality-creation activities, music and movement, and open space for members of the group to become facilitators of mini-talks on things they feel passionate about and want to share with others (which is always fascinating to see).  CAST creates a safe container for your team of artist / community to understand and be understood by each other.  The program engages participants in multiple ways to use their minds, bodies, imagination, and creativity to know each other in fun, respectful and inspiring ways.

The CAST process results in:

  • Greater connection and respect
  • Constructing a new story of self awareness and action
  • Lots of fun and inspiration
  • Authentic relating at a deeper level (moving from limitation to possibility)
  • Insight into the hidden strengths and passions of others
  • Increased trust, and better ability to collaborate
  • Understanding new ideas, new models, and new ways of facilitating groups
  • Greater ability to focus on shared visions

Optional Elements:

Special Topic Presentations:  In addition to group activities and facilitated exercises, it is possible to include into the program pockets of time for brief presentations by subject matter experts on select topics relevant to the group.  These would be chosen from a list beforehand by your Production Team and there is no extra cost.  For example, there could be 2 or 3 presentations of 20-minutes each on such topics as:

Story-Based Strategy                                             Examining Roles & Goals                                      The Philosophy of the Social Artist

Non-Violent Communication                             Creating  Regenerative Communities
