Original Play is the courage to be kind and safe in all situations. This practice is a way of relating to the world that transforms patterns of fear, aggression and violence into love, kindness and belonging. Original Play conveys a message of connection that is a powerful alternative to fear and contest behavior. It allows us to effectively respond to aggression, violence and other unproductive behaviors while maintaining self esteem and not diminishing the esteem of others.
Original Play is not about games, sports, winning, losing, playing a game or having fun. These culturally-based behaviors are not part of Original Play.
