What does the Press say about Lauren?
“‘It’s this total freedom from our own inner critic, harsh voice and censorship,’ says Lauren Stein about how improv helps with well-being” – Guelph Today
“The point is to break up the conditioned habit loops in their minds that keep people fretting about mistakes from the past and problems that may arise in the future. … I can certainly see how Stein’s form of therapy could be effective,” says Bill Hulet in the Guelph Back-Grounder article, Will Improv Fix Capitalism, or, is it a Revival of Sacred Clowning?
Lauren talked improv in a changing business world and played scenes with radio DJs on CBC The Morning Edition – K-W with Craig Norris, Ontario Morning with Julianne Hazlewood (13 minutes in), Windsor Morning, London Morning, and Metro Morning in Toronto.
