Barbara will show you how to reclaim the joy of play in your life by taking you through how you played as a child and what was magic for you. Next, you will see when you stopeed or slowed down your play. Finally, you will embark on a journey to see how you can have your "Heart Play" in your life again.

The Gift of Play also gives you a chance to see how you might finally find the time to play. With all the demands of our current lives, sometimes play is the last thing we make time for and Barbara takes us through a series of wonderful exercises to reclaim the time and start playing again!
