Practicing being vulnerable, facing our fears, letting go, and creativity are important while journeying down our spiritual path. Improv is a great way to get playful and comfortable with the unknown. With no script, you have to create everything yourself, on the fly. And you don't have control, as you have to mesh your ideas with other people's ideas in real time. Such freedom can be scary, and you must make yourself vulnerable when creating in the moment. But improv is great because you get to practice these acts in a low stakes environment, where the highest goals are playfulness and silliness. Meet others along the way and maybe even take with you what you experience and apply it to other areas along your spiritual journey through life!
Pete Aiello is the founder of TeamPete, a company that uses improv comedy to create fun and meaningful corporate team building and communication training workshops. He teaches the improv class for Fear Experiment, a project where people push themselves out of their comfort zone to learn an art form that scares them. He also, along with Saya Hillman of Mac n Cheese Productions, runs Potluck, a monthly evening of short-form presentations from a variety of speakers.
