We may not be able to see all of the people we wish we could, but we can grow existing in-person connections and set aside time to nurture them by breaking out of the repetitive cycle of our daily lives. How?

Through PLAY!

Take a break from the daily grind and join Dafna Lender in a few quick and easy play sessions meant to help us all experience fun, joy, and connection with another person!

Dafna will be leading a series of eight 45 minute interactive play sessions based on Theraplay® for you and anyone in your house/ workplace/ pandemic bubble.

You will play simple, interactive, face-to-face activities, which will bring the simplest and purest form of connection: laughter, joy, and relaxation. The activities require no previous skill or experience-the only thing you have to bring is your human need for connection!

Anyone! You can bring your child, your parent, your co-worker, roommate, spouse/partner, neighbor or caregiver. You can bring anyone that you feel comfortable with. Your play partner can be of any age or mobility level. All of the activities will be able to be modified.
