Regular Monster Baby listeners know that Ted and Lisa love to play. In their latest episode, you learn why. The intrepid pair discuss play as a connector (1:43), whether it makes sense to be playful in such tough times (5:02), and different types of play (7:49). They consider the impacts and qualities of a playful attitude (10:27) and how play evokes the sacred and creates intimacy (15:18). Ted acknowledges that he sometimes resists play (20:24) before exploring how play shows ups in mindfulness practice (26;42). Lisa and Ted consider how it might be worth prioritizing play in one’s life (31:12) and how the Universe invites us to dance along with it (34:08). They close with the importance of having fun in general, referencing rubber ducks, plastic flamingos, elves on a shelf and a pipe cleaner Jesus along the way (40:01). We hope you’ll enjoy!
