@ VOL 1 ON APR 29, 2010

Architect Jack DeBartolo and his father (DeBartolo architects) have been taking ordinary projects and turning them into extraordinary solutions.

Afer living in San Fransisco for three years, Christina Hug returned to Toronto and founded The Makers Nation, an organization to coalescing the art, tech, design, and maker communities in cities around the world to meet, collaborate, learn and make things.

Since that expereince, she has a new mission - to encourage adults to play more.  She wants to offer the perspective that how work and play can complement each other.

Mindful Play

BY DEE WAGNER
@ VOL 28 ON FEB 21, 2016

Dee Wagner joins us to discuss mindful play and how it may be used in place of the third reaction style that follows the two known reactions "fight" & "flight"... The third is "shutdown" and is a reposnse when neither 'fight' not 'flight' are an option... Mindful play has its roots in the polyvagal theory and Dee walks us through responses, the nexus of her mindful play approach, and peppers it all with her own personal story.
