The genius of our technology has not minimized the importance of our humanity in the healing process. It is in our healing connections with patients/people that we inspire and promote health.

Internationally recognized physicians who also have experience in the art of clown healing will lead this pre-festival workshop. Last year we were joined by the ranks of Drs. Patch Adams, Carl Hammerschlag, John Glick, Bowen White and professional clown teacher Dan Griffiths.

This workshop is intended for healthcare professionals interested in learning and using the principles and practice of clown therapy to expand their therapeutic repertoire and magnify their healing power.

This 6-hour workshop combines didactic material with experiential learning that focuses on active listening, trusting ones intuition, brief interventions, and identifying peoples strengths and resilience.

The clinicians in this workshop will be invited to participate as “Truth Fairies” during the Fest. In which they will participate in The Truth clinic (for more information go to The Truth Clinic page on our website).

As a healthcare professional, you will learn how to:

- Magnify your healing power
- Establish heartfelt connections with patients in short periods of time
- Incorporate new healing modalities into your clinical work
- Share the rich history of The Fool/Jester/Clown as sacred healer

5.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit for physicians and

Our Video About Volunteering

Dr. Carl Hammerschlag

Dr. Carl Hammerschlag talks about volunteers -- we can always use them for our events + festivals. Plus, who wouldn't want to volunteer for such a great cause and making those who are ill feel better?

John Jay Koriath, Ph.D.

"In the three decades I’ve known and worked with Carl he has used his heartfelt healing skills to help people find new ways of seeing that would free them from mindsets that no longer serve them. We need that energy to transform healthcare today and I am confident the ClownTown Healing event will lead us in that direction."
