This week has been fairly busy with PhD related activities ranging from lecturing on play and active reflection. I was surprised by the sophistication of some student replies in regards to the definition/ exploration of play. Many were able to capture and describe the intrinsic nature of play.
However, when it came to playful interaction most of them were unable to connect their mind to playful activity in the moment. If one understand thinking as another sense and wants to be creative these experiments confirm more and more that the more senses are stimulated at the same time allows for better connection with the state of being as well as with the environment as well as creativity.
