Welcome to the
Playground of Possibilities!
Are you a heart-centred person who wants more
love, joy, meaning and fulfillment in your life?
And are you committed to the work – and play –
of personal and spiritual growth?
Maybe life’s going pretty well for you and, like me, you LOVE reading self-help books; you’re a workshop junkie; you watch videos about healing, personal development and spiritual growth; you meditate; you consult your deck of angel cards; you have regular sessions with your coach and all kinds of interesting healers and bodyworkers; you trust in a higher power…
So doesn’t it drive you nuts when things don’t go the way you’d hoped and planned, as quickly as you wanted?
I’m Kay Ross, an Australian living in Hong Kong, and I know that frustration. It sucks!
Maybe, like me, you sometimes go through phases of feeling stuck, fearful, hopeless and powerless. Your work and your relationships don’t make your heart sing anymore. You wonder why everyone else is having all the fun and love and success that you want. And you slip into blaming other people and your circumstances for your problems.
Or maybe you sabotage yourself by believing that nagging voice in your head – you know, the one that constantly says “Not good enough.” Sometimes you just don’t love yourself. And you worry that maybe it’s too late or it’s going to be too hard, or even impossible, for you to change.
Here’s the good news
There really is a fun, quick and easy way for you to:
- examine and transform your thoughts, beliefs and stories about yourself and the world,
- listen to the wisdom of your body,
- tap into the benevolent abundance of the Universe,
- take bold action, and
- live a life of love, joy, meaning and fulfillment, every day.
That’s good news too if you’re a coach, healer, therapist or bodyworker who’s looking for some fun, simple tools and ideas to help your clients live the life they want, be happy and take responsibility for their choices.
Life is a Playground of Possibilities!
Yes, I believe that LIFE is a playground of possibilities – in every moment, the Universe offers us abundant opportunities and asks us to decide what we want, trust that it’s possible to have it, let it in, and be happy.
When you live as if your life is a playground of possibilities, you’ll start to:
- become more aware of your thoughts, beliefs and stories,
- notice how they’ve created your current reality, and
- see that you really do have the choice and the power to change.
And when you approach life with a mindset of being open to new possibilities, being willing to experiment playfully and courageously with new ways of thinking and being, and paying attention to the Universe’s taps on your shoulder, then you’ll see delightful opportunities everywhere.
Best of all, when you trust, ask for help and surrender to the safety of the loving embrace of a Universe that’s conspiring on your behalf, things will unfold even better than you could have imagined.
Pick a card, any card…
The first fun resource I’m creating in the Playground of Possibilities is a card deck, with 52 questions designed to prompt you to examine and transform your thoughts, beliefs and stories about yourself and the world. They’ll also invite you to experiment playfully with new ways of being.
Here are some of the cards from my hand-made prototype deck (the finished deck might not look exactly the same). Can you guess what my favourite colour is?
I’ve received some great feedback so far. My friend Kirk Nugent, an inspirational poet, speaker and author, said:
“I believe that the world will welcome the Playground of Possibilities with open arms.”
And my niece Omanisa Ross in Darwin, Australia, who’s a gifted naturopath, healer, writer and artist, said:
“I love the sound of your new project. Fantastic questions! Very powerful. I’d love to use your cards with my clients.
They would love them. So would many of my colleagues.”
Let’s play (and heal)!
You’re invited to my “Life is a Playground of Possibilities – Improvising More Resourceful, Joyful Ways of Being” public workshop, where we’ll do some bodywork/healing processes, play some improv games (no experience required!) and play with my prototype card deck.
I presented this workshop (twice) at the conference of the international Applied Improvisation Network (AIN) in Montreal, Canada, in September 2015, and one participant commented on Facebook: “Collective magic, under your careful guidance, at work! What a lovely thing to participate in!”
I then presented the workshop in Hong Kong on April 23, 2016, and also on Monday May 9, 2016, in Darwin, Australia – details here
One of the participants in the workshop in Hong Kong sent me this lovely testimonial, and has given me permission to share it, with her name:
“Thanks for making the experience meaningful and fun. Now, when I have some limiting beliefs trying to surface, I try the ‘New Choice’ method. I hope it will help me to deal with some drab and dreary situations. As a facilitator, you are fun, engaging and able to get your point across, without imposing your views. I enjoyed every part of the session and am now putting what I learned into practice.”

On April 15, 2016, I was interviewed by Noreen Mir on “The 1 2 3 Show” on RTHK Radio 3 in Hong Kong. We chatted about the workshop, The Playground of Possibilities, my card deck, improv, Applied Improvisation, coaching, decision-making, creativity… Here’s a recording of the 27-minute interview.
My niece Omanisa Ross in Darwin helped me to organise and promote the workshop there. She interviewed me and wrote a terrific blog post about the workshop and the ideas behind it: “The Playground of Possibilities”.
Dates and venues for future public workshops are still to be decided – I’ll post information here. And contact me if you’d like me to come and lead a workshop for your organisation or community.
Now, I’m asking for YOUR help to make the card-deck dream a reality!
I’m planning a crowdfunding campaign to raise the funds to get the first print run of the Playground of Possibilities card deck designed and printed (and there might be an app too).
So if you’d like to keep in touch and hear about the crowdfunding campaign and the launch of the card deck, skip on down to the sign-up form at the bottom of this page and say “Yes please!” To say thanks for signing up, I’ll send you a collection of 120 inspiring, thought-provoking quotes I love, by Abraham, Brené Brown, Deepak Chopra, Albert Einstein, Louise Hay, Byron Katie, Rumi, Thich Nhat Hanh, Zig Ziglar and many others.
Then, you’ll have the opportunity to support the campaign, spread the word to your friends, and receive one of the very first Playground of Possibilities card decks, hot off the printing press.
Will you meet me in the Playground of Possibilities?
