Have you ever seen a “rubber pencil”? Listened to the sounds of the ocean in a conch shell? Watched an uncle “steal” a toddler’s nose? People—children and teens especially—delight in playing with perceptual illusions of all kinds. Their simple, embodied fun allows a safe way to interact with others and (unknowingly) create unspoken traditions.

Learn how to recognize and use unspoken games & illusions and group communication as a powerful tool to build tradition within today’s communities. Along the way, learn something fun and new to pass on to co-workers, friends and kids!
