What is Original Play?
“Original Play”® seeks: to improve relationships between individuals and groups by replacing aggression and violence between people with kindness and love to make every child feel safe and loved.
“Original Play”®: presents an alternative to aggression and violence without the use of force, while maintaining self esteem for oneself as well as others. It provides choices of possible reactions to aggression, violence and fear without the need for revenge. It transforms deep-rooted negative habits and patterns of behaviour into new habits based on feelings of love, belonging and safety. It creates a safe space for the transformation of physical or verbal aggression.
“Original Play”® is a psychological and physiological process. It is a combination of cognitive, emotional and sensory-motor learning, which can only be understood and developed by practice.
“Original Play”® is free of competition, rivalry and feelings of winning or losing. It is a universal process, reaching beyond cultural, social or language boundaries. That is why it serves as the basis for interpersonal communication and cultural integration. It is a meeting place where we can feel that we belong to a group, without the social divisions.
