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.
