A Play-Pull Life explores the ways of being and becoming informed by the life-giving and balance-inducing power of play. Whether subjective play, informal social play, or even professionals at play, play is fundamentally an attitude to life that goes beyond specific activities. A Play-Full Life empowers readers to explore the meaning of a Sabbath-like life speaking of simplicity, serenity, and sensing the fullness of life. Readers will receive practical guidelines to cultivate a play-full self, while being introduced to ordinary persons and faith communities living play-full lives.
