Life at its best is a life lit up.  I believe when we are living with our light lit - we are creatively unstoppable, un-apologeticly our authentic self, and in communion with something magical. And yet... sometime, the school of hard-knocks strike and darkness sets. I know. I've been there. And just like that - the light in us and around us - goes out. I'm here to help turn you back on.

Moon Circles

Women have been gathering in rhythm with the moon since ancient times.  It’s one of the oldest, wisest and soul fulfilling forms of play I know - one I believe our souls deeply remember and are longing for.  It’s a time to sync up with the natural world, join a community, take a deep breath, release unneeded sh*t, and call in your heart’s desire.

Play Classes

Remember playing as a kid, lost in time, as if anything was possible?  These courses help you re-enter that magical, joyful, innovative, free state of childhood play.  Through play, we build resilience, trust, and compassion, have access to our best ideas, and get to know our authentic self. Nothing gets you out of the mud and into your light quicker.

About Me

My name is Laurel Marlantes, and one thing I know for sure is that when the light in your life goes out, it can be hard as hell to turn it back on. I know because I’ve been there. Through struggles with anxiety, the stillbirth of my first child, and general hard-knocks (which we all have!), I have often stumbled in the darkness. Then, one day, I realized I could apply practices of PLAY which I chased in my professional career as an improviser, designer, and actress, to my personal life. By doing so, my heartache soften, my anxiety eased and my light turned back on. Now I am passionate and dedicated to creating classes and experiences to help others do the same.
