Activation: Can you get 'in the zone'? Try your hand at circus arts!

You’ve probably heard of or had the feeling of being “in the zone”. But does it happen randomly? Or is it a mastered art?

In positive psychology, a flow state is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energised focus and enjoyment in the process of the activity. Think active mindfulness!

So what does this mean for the workplace?
Flow has huge relevance to productivity - giving you an awesome tool that can nurture faster individual learning, creativity and reframe our approach to innovation.

How can we attain flow?

Flow state generally requires two key components: goals and feedback. This can be achieved in many different forms, with physical activities being one common way people can develop their flow-jo.

Join us in the bar and attempt to get your flow on while trying your hand at circus arts with global performance specialist Dr. Jon Burtt.

Dr. Jon Burtt, specialist in dance, theatre and circus studies at Macquarie University will lead the session alongside his students. In 2017, he launched a new Circus and Performance unit in the Dance and Performance Major, and is the founder of the Macquarie Circus Training Group.
