WHAT IS CLOWN 4 LIFE?
A New Concept in Online Clown Mentoring
HI, I'M BARNABY
Clowning has been my life since 2000 when I was exposed to the magic of clowning and realised that this was my path and my calling.
What was it about clowning that captured my heart?
First and foremost was the fact that it required nothing except my own complete honesty and authenticity in front of an audience. That kind of stripping away of masks and pretense appealed to me hugely, because my whole life I'd always felt I was 'pretending' to be something I wasn't.
Now I could be myself and the audience loved it.
And that was the second thing about clowning that was so incredible...the audience's unconditional love. Up there on stage I felt so seamlessly connected with the audience, I felt accepted and loved in a way I had never felt before.
Of course the audience were just reflecting back what they saw - me, allowing myself to be the biggest and highest version of myself possible. And together, as one, we could go on a journey of transformation which would leave us altered forever.
That was it...I was hooked.
I made shows, I wrote a book, I taught many courses in many countries.
My most recent amazing discovery has been the power of clown teaching online, which I never would have thought possible. But over the past 2 years I have seen that people coming together via the magic of technology can get the same feeling of connection, spiritual deepening and emotional letting go that they get in person.
There is always space for new discoveries and new adventures, and our journey together is beginning right here and right now.
Welcome to CLOWN SPIRIT.
Thank you Barnaby for creating the Clown4Life platform. It's hard to put into words how transformative it is to be a part of it and all it offers. The ClownX Masterclass series alone has been pure magic. The practices and wisdom shared in each one is a gift in itself; compound the workshops and it is truly a winfall! I am so grateful for the constant inspiration and encouragement, and for what I am learning about myself and clowning. Did I mention, ClownX is M.A.G.I.C.?
As a new clown, the Clown 4 Life platform has been invaluable. No where else could I get access to so many different teachers, resources, courses, and community! The weekly coaching sessions have really been helping me take steps forward. Barnaby creates such a welcoming and safe space that is really is a community. I’m only partway through the Clown Connection course, but the research Barnaby has done is amazing (and he gives you copies his resources to read for yourself)! This platform opened a door to clowning for me that otherwise would have remained shut due to financial limitations.
CLOWN 4 LIFE has been an incredible source of support and inspiration for my first steps as a clown. A fantastic community across the globe with play, laughter, inspiration and creative processes. Barnaby give you inspiration and support so that it makes you want more. There are many options for both intensive and extensive processes. I myself started with a weekend intensive, then 8 weeks and now I have bought my first annual subscription.
All the practical aspects of payment, links, communication, etc. work flawlessly and it is always easy to get in touch if there are questions.
