To build up trust with your partner or other participants.
Participants work in pairs.
One participant stands in front of the other one.
At any moment when the first participant feels comfortable, he/she can fall back into the hands of the second participant.
The second participant makes sure that his/her partner enjoys the falling moment and feels fully supported.
Participants can change their roles freely.
After working in pairs, you can take a step forward and work in groups of up to 8 people. In this case, one participant is standing in the middle of a circle made of other participants and is being supported by them in his/her movements.
Participants can start to gently “push” him/her around, creating a continuous movement. The person falling down should have their hands by their body and be completely straighten out.
How did it feel to fall?
Did you trust others?
Things to keep in mind…
Make sure that everybody understands the instructions.
It’s better to do this activity outside on the grass, as there is a risk of injury.
Remind the participant who is falling, that to make it count, he/she should really try to fall (into the hands of their partner/s).
