100 Ways to Do Nothing

7-8:30 pm, Tuesdays March 8, 15, 22, 29, and April 5, 12.

In this series of workshop, we will “do nothing” in various forms as a group. As the facilitator, I will offer no reason, explanation, or purpose for this class. The ideal participant will come with no expectations, and no inhibitions.

This is the tentative sequence of workshops. As workshops progress, they will become more difficult. Each activity will last roughly one hour. We will not talk to each other before the classes begin, however, we will have a brief decompression talk after each session.

*Nothing but the Disco: We all will lie down on the floor and look up at the ceiling. There will be a disco ball, and music. There will be no talking or dancing.

*Nothing to watch: We will sit in silence while several tv screens air the most inane television shows.

*Nothing but each other: We will spend the entire session staring into each other’s eyes. There will be no talking.

*Nothing but smiles: We will sit in a circle and smile at each other for an entire hour. There will be no talking.

*Nothing to wear: We will sit in a circle with our clothes off for an hour. There will be no talking or touching.

*Nothing but feeling: We will sit on the ground wearing blindfolds and earplugs. We will sit in a circle so that everyone will be able to hold onto someone else’s hand. There will be no talking, or looking at each other.
