How often have you heard from your kids “Play with Me?”.   PLAY is not only important for child development, but for enhancing family communication, connection and resiliency.  PLAY helps us to better deal with those daily stresses. PLAY brings us JOY and the amazing benefits of laughter.  PLAYing with our kids reminds us  and our kids of how amazing they are, how important they are to us and provides us with the needed stress release from the daily grind of responsibilities.

As a way to give back to her community and carve in play time with her family, Jacquie Hermans, Inspirational Comedian and Emotional Intelligence Specialist,  is offering 3 FREE mondays to PLAY with our kids along with tools to continue the play time once the program is complete.

IDEAS TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN FOR YOUR FAMILY: Our schedules are already busy. Let’s make it easy on ourselves to make this happen for our families.  Organize a pot luck with neighbours.  Share in the cooking and organization by giving jobs to your kids and partners.  Reinforce how much you love to play with your kids, but in order to attend we need to work as a team.

(The evening will consist of low to moderate active games (laughter generating) and a brief explanation as to why we tend to gravitate to sugar, caffeine, or smoking to enhance your awareness for more informed choices)

Register for one or more weeks.

6pm – 7pm.

Location: Uxpool (upstairs meeting room)

Cost: $5/person per week (Register for 8wks – get one week free)  Families of 4 or more can purchase discounted family pass.

So far the “Having a Blast”  retreat has been featured at the beautiful Grail Springs. Stay tuned to find out when and where the next retreat will take place.


Having a Blast!

Let your hair down, leave the city and stress behind, and spend a weekend with inspirational comedian Jacquie Hermans!
Participate in laughter generating activities that will ignite your happy and break down those barriers that have been preventing you from truly enjoying life. Release your inhibitions and give yourself permission to have a blast in all areas of your life. Experience the power of LAUGHTER & PLAY.
One of the amazing things about this course is that you won’t even realize you are walking through fears of failure and judgment because you will simply be having a blast.  But what’s even more significant is any type of practice you have in walking through fears, will assist you in dealing with life’s obstacles, in taking action despite fear, in achieving what your heart desires.  Come…‘Have A Blast’ and Light’n Up with Jacquie Hermans!

“I have seen a change in my thought process.  I am more positive and can laugh @ myself more.  I can let the negative go and hold onto the good.  I would highly recommend this for anyone who wants to laugh more, trust others and themselves more!”
Diana Ciccone
