Invite to Philplay’s 7th G.A. and a workshop entitled, Playing My Music: Tuning In to My Inner Self

Dear Friends,
Music is visibly embedded in daily life. It is played just about anywhere. Research has shown the power of music can have on people.
As it is such a part of our lives, whether we are conscious of it or not, how is it possible to harness its power for ourselves? How is it possible to harness it so that we enable us to live our lives fully and meaningfully?

Join us as we engage in an experience of Music and discover how it can be used as an instrument for transformation and healing, on PhilPlay’s 7th year anniversary celebration, this coming 23 July 2016.

Please see the attached invitation for more details. As slots are limited, we request those who are coming to email back a confirmation for headcount purposes.

We’re looking forward to seeing you. Thank you.

Hello everyone! Thank you to all those who joined the Basic Play Therapy Workshop last May 17-19, 2016! 

Here are some pictures and words to capture the three day event c/o Philplay president Dr.Wash Garcia: 


The time. The space. “To be.”

Day 1 of the recent Basic Play Therapy Workshop 1 (BPT1) held last May 17-19.

The participants were busy at play, doing what they felt like doing, reaching back to their childhood experiences and opening doors to creativity.

And they were just getting started!


Listening. And the importance of respect and pacing.

Day 2 of BPT1.

Grounding the play experience on concepts, theories and principles of child psychology, examining the nuances of therapist-client relationship, and exploring the dynamics of the self. Telling our own stories. Sharing insights gained from interacting with children in specific work settings. Seeing thru the lens of our own culture.


Mental furniture. And pieces of the soul.

Day 3 of BPT1.

Some of the outputs of the participants from going thru selected modes of expressive therapy.
