"In a 2D mindset, you write the story
and usually fall short of living up to it.
In a 3D mind in motion, you live the story,
and usually fall short in trying to express it in words."
- Craig Cloutier, Co-Founder,Splash City Studios

The Hero's Journey: A Means to Navigate Uncertainty
“If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path.
Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.” - Joseph Campbell
Going down the road of life, you reach a Y in the road. You have a choice. You can take the How-to goal road where the path is laid out for you. It's a linear, hierarchical path that offers conformity, in-the-box thinking and step-by-step instructions. The longer you stay on the goal path, the more two-dimensional the world becomes. The path eventually narrows and becomes limiting and rigid. It's 2D.
Or you can choose to take the HERO'S JOURNEY. It's nonlinear and requires following the unknown, trusting yourself and your passion. It's full of wonder, serendipity and discovery. The longer you stay on the journey, magic unfolds, the more multi-dimensional the world becomes, and the more 3D, heroic and vibrant you become. Possibility abounds.
"Wonderful, engaging and useful. The discussion on why story is so effective as a means of changing your brain and state of mind is really powerful... I was struck by cynicism being mistaken for critical thinking. That is a powerful observation and it's so relevant... unfortunately, many view cynicism as the new hip way to look at life. " - Dani S., Respite Director, Yoga Instructor

"The magic of a fairy tale lies in its enchanting manner of communicating and illuminating even the most profound
and complex themes through simplicity and beauty,
within its story and its art.
To know and relate to beauty requires no special instruction, no special qualifications,
only a childlike sense of wonder and sensitivity."
- Looking Glass Sky, Deborah Whitaker, Co-Founder, Splash City Studios
What's Splash City?
Splash City is a cartoon world that exists in our books, blogs and website. Every place in it is a perspective, every character a reflection. Its a projective tool we turned into a full therapeutic self-development program to encourage emotional intelligence in a playful way.
The Now Playing in 3D Self-Empowerment PlayShop offers a new and exciting approach to personal transformation. As you re-write your life stories as a character in the cartoon world Splash City, you enhance your self-reliance, and empower your imagination, creativity, and flow. You are then "playing in 3D."
Our comprehensive program, "Now Playing in 3D," is more than a technique. It is a step onto the mythological hero's journey. As we say in our books, "the hero's journey is an untraveled path, led only by purpose and imagination; a sacred and universal path of the individual toward themselves. The only instructions are the serendipities that occur along the way."
When you sign up for this PlayShop, you are taking a step onto the journey yourself.
