healing game

individual self-development program enhancing potential of people with special needs

Feeling safe and lovable despite disabilities, special needs, or other limitations… that is the key unlocking the full potential of a human being. Healing Game is an open space to be filled with authentic expression of an individual. Inviting the present action/emotion, we seek for the sense of belonging and competence. Making the deep experience of one’s own authenticity possible.

  • promoting genuineness and uniqueness in a playful way
  • curious and kind observation and response without performance evaluation

what we don’t offer

cornerstones of our work

play | freedom

Play is the safest way to interact and explore the world. In play we have the opportunity to share and physically experience the world of others, to feel empathetic. At the same time, play represents a way of expressing relationships with other people. Everyone is safe while playing. There is no rating, rivalry, competition or dunning in play. There are no rules on the outside. Play is the space between beings. A space of mutual openness and love, through which we perceive a sense of safety and belonging. Authentic play allows you to be free in experience, expression and relation to the world.

contact | safety

We believe in the power of physical contact. Every person needs touch just like s/he needs water or air. Working with touch gives us a feeling of belonging and safety, allows us to open up and can also correct past traumas. A physically rooted sense of peace and security is a condition for us to be able to interact with others without fear, be more communicative, establish deeper relationships, respond adequately to the environment, and learn more effectively. A gentle touch opens the way to communication, and at the same time through touch  we can directly convey emotions or feelings and define interpersonal relationships.

Mgr. Martin Ledvinka

What matters to me is the experience of spontaneous, playful and creative communication with each other, whatever the communication channel. Since 2014, I have worked in institutions providing social care to people with mental disabilities and psychical illness, then I worked with children from a socially disadvantaged community. Practice has brought me to the subject of physical and emotional closeness and safety as the cornerstone of each person’s self-esteem. Since 2016 and the discovery of intuitive approach of Original Play, I have been learning the most from Fred Donaldson, who is for me a model of the embodied sense of acceptance, security and immediate enjoyment of belonging to others. I am grateful to share my life and values ​​with my wife Kateřina, with whom I also cooperate on the Healing Game program.
