Playshop Offerings

“All therapies, and all help, and all knowledge are going to be absolutely obsolete. People need immediately self-exalted experience. And that is what the whole essence of human life is.”
– Yogi Bhajan
A list of my core offerings follow. Want to co-create something new? We can do that too. Shoot me an email here. 

:: ShadowPlay ::
Together we make our unconscious feelings conscious—and do so with a welcoming grimace. Rather than a time to think on our shadowy aspects, this is a space to BE with them. Together through meditation, live music and movement, we hold space for our whole selves. It's not all heavy: It's The Light & The Weight! Take this workshop to achieve personal catharsis and renewal; cultivate a closer relationship with your emotional body; locate and express the rebel inside you; and connect with a whole-making community of non-judgment and unconditional love!

Buoyancy
Buoyancies are like ShadowPlay-lite.
Still combining carefully-crafted live music, guided meditation and somatic movement, but with a calmer balance of allowance/expression designed to gently relax, inspire, and reinvigorate participants at all energy levels.

Locating Your Inner Child
Yep. It's play-time, goof-time, wonder-time.
Figuratively, I hold your hand while you have full permission to ham it up.

Redefining Manhood for the New Paradigm
Toward healthy expressions of masculinity.
We're inviting men to get out of our heads and into our hearts.
There’s greater freedom there.
We're redefining strength not as power over others but as forces for justice—leading from love and holding space for the feminine.
We're not to become someone else's idea of us. We're to locate and return to who we are.
We're to give each other permission to be our full selves—the ones that have been culturally denied to men and women alike.

Meditative Concert
I designed this playshop to be how would want to attend a concert. Void of lines, spilling beers, pompous chatter, and awkward pauses. I meld my dreamy electronic-folk music with guided meditation and cathartic visualization. In between my intimate songs I lay open the essential feeling and imagery from which my songs are borne, and guide a unique meditative experience that is at once deepening and liberating—illuminating the namesake of my band and business, "The Light & The Weight". Both a private concert and interactive, emergent meditation, this playshop promises equal parts inner-peace and ecstasy to inspire your day's conscious unfolding.

16 Feb / Danny Lampton

Danny Lampton is a musician, writer and soul-centered entrepreneur.
His band and business, The Light & The Weight, is his vessel.

An experienced facilitator and leader in conscious communication, creativity and innovation, Danny's approach is fundamentally transdisciplinary with an emphasis on regenerative systems, Buddhism, Evolutionary Astrology, Jungian and social psychology, Gestalt therapy, Somatics, Shamanism, sacred geometry, ancient philosophy and good ol' western sciences.

Danny's work is founded on the natural law that teaches us how all Earthly dilemmas exist in paradox—between, across and beyond false dichotomies like good/evil and growth/sustainability that turn humans against ourselves, pit economy against environment, and rob the world's systems of their soul. He believes that our calling at this pivotal point in human evolution is to navigate the relativity of life on Earth not with sanctimony but with our compass pointed toward curiosity and compassion. Danny's litmus test for communication and action can be framed by the question, "Does it lead with love?"

Prior to earning his MBA in Sustainable Systems from what is now Presidio Graduate School (PGS), Danny worked in communications at the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) and then at the Northwest Earth Institute. In between those experiences he focused on music production while bartending at Ada St. in Chicago. During business school Danny also worked closely with Community Sourced Capital on changing the ways conventional society thinks about finance—from doing harm to healing, and as a tool to create the world we actually want to live in.

Based in Portland, OR, Danny is an impact investor for organizations including Conscious Company Media and Change Finance. He's also an active member of Resource Generation and Solidaire Network

Danny is a Leo Sun that trines Uranus and squares his Taurus Moon, has a stellium in Leo, with Gemini Rising, Aquarius Midheaven, and his North Node in Aries. Danny is an Enneagram Type 4.
