For Body, for Mind. Primal Play with Darryl Edwards [City Women Network]

Get Your Tickets:

This is a unique opportunity to attend a City Women Network event, which is a membership organisation of senior female leaders based in London on 21st May 6-9pm in Farringdon.

What one thing can you do that be a better leader and listener? To be more robust and resilient, improve performance and reduce stress as well as reducing the risk of physical and mental health issues?

That thing is PLAY and it’s Darryl Edward’s life passion.

The evening will open with Darryl’s talk about his background, the transformation of his earlier career as a programmer in the City and the principals of his approach.

We’ll then transition to a highly active and fun workshop based on Darryl’s 'Primal Play' method.

Talk: Movement as medicine

An engaging talk on the importance of physical activity for the general population. 

What does research tell us about the particular benefits for women, benefits for the workplace and for our future?

How can we make sure we are doing enough?

Activity: Primal Play Method

We will engage in an evening of novel games and activities to help us reconnect with our inner child and to fall in love with movement again.

With solo, partner and group-based challenges that are collaborative and competitive - great for the mind and body - but most importantly are a whole lot of fun!

The activities are designed to be inclusive and accessible for all ages and abilities, comfortable clothing and footwear advised.

Afterwards, refreshments will be provided along with ample opportunity to network with other CWN members and guests.

Darryl’s work to change lives through the power of play has also resulted in a recent TEDx talk which you can see here, as well as talks to Harvard Medical School, three books and an academic paper. To find out even more about Darryl, please see biography here.
