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 early struggles with an anxiety disorder and the stillbirth of my first child, I often stumbled in the darkness. Then, I had the “aha” to apply practices of PLAY and JOY 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.
