Let Spirited Improv move you into …

Full Permission to Be Who You Are

“I’m so grateful for Spirited Improv because it offers a play space where I feel total permission to unleash my true, complete, whole, and carefree self. To give and receive love, joy, and deep connection. Free from fear of judgment or a need to “be or do” anything. The magic of this offering comes with any Jessica Experience as her presence opens people to full permission to be their true selves and express their essence in the now, without worry about the moment ahead or behind. This is a space that allows for truly beautiful, co-created Spirited expression.” ~ Hannah

Cathartic Release & Being Fully in Your Heart

“Jessica Chilton’s Spirited Improv is a transformative experience. I did not know what to expect—I definitely did not know that I’d  be leaving that night fully in my heart, and with such a sweet satisfaction of expression, cathartic release, and authentic connection. This woman is an incredible facilitator and deserves her own Broadway show. She gives every ounce of her being and channels something that can only be described in poetry.” ~ Alena

Sheer Joy & Breaking Out of Our Own Boxes

"Spirited Improv is sheer joy! It is the perfect combination of challenge and breaking out of our own boxes, while allowing our conscious connection with unconditional love and trust to come through. This combination is so inspiring, as well as fertile ground for authentic expression. Jessica holds a masterful space, inviting co-creation, curiosity and so much play!" ~ Misa

Intimate Connection & Expanded Freedom

“Spirited Improv was an amazing blend of joyful play, creative experimentation and surprisingly tender, intimate connections. Jessica is an incredibly gifted, big-hearted and creative leader. I felt so much freer, happier and full of love after!” ~ Elah

Higher Realms while Grounded on Earthly Plane

“To create a container that reaches into higher realms and keeps us on our earthly plane is no easy task. Jessica is truly brilliant at this! She created such a welcoming and safe place to be natural with others and let expression arise. I highly recommend Spirited Improv if you’re looking to welcome in more joy, creativity, connection and playfulness into life!” ~ Sara

Whether you are brand new to improv or a pro, you can experience…

Medicine for Your Heart & Nervous System

“I almost didn't go, as it had been a particularly challenging time. Such a delightful surprise for Spirited Improv to be just the right medicine for my heart, nervous system, and the parts of me that were hungry for creativity and play.  Jessica is a gifted space holder, and gentle yet courageous facilitator. The spectrum of her choices invited me to move physically and emotionally through so much that had been stuck.” ~Sheri

Liberating Embodiment of the Silly & Sacred Hilarious Humanness

“I experienced Spirited Improv as liberating embodiment. It truly runs the gamut from silly to sacred and everything in between. As someone who has done a fair amount of improv, it was refreshing to be invited into deeper creative and spiritual waters while using foundational improv methods as the vehicle. Jessica provides a beautiful space for introspection, authentic community connection and lots of laughter. Unlike traditional comedy improv classes, there is no sense of the underlying pressure to "be funny". Instead, we realize humor as a natural byproduct when we explore and share our hilarious human-ness.” ~Lindy

Trusting Yourself in the Unknown

“What a delightful and fun experience! Spirited Improv put me in a position to keep stepping into the unknown and trusting myself. I felt free and I felt in touch with the deep, knowing part of me while still reveling in play, laughter, and fun in the moment. I would 10/10 recommend this experience and Jessica's magic for anyone." ~Amanda

Love that Touches Your Heart

“I was worried that in going to Spirited Improv I would feel a need be funny or clever. I was very wrong-- the time together was very fun, safe, joyful and also amazingly potent. Jessica brings a variety of creative group experiences and each one we played with touched my heart. I felt nourished, loved and energized!” ~Lynne

Each Human’s Unique Expression of Love

“While I can tend to be shy, the environment Jessica creates allowed me to feel comfortable to show up. I was astounded by what naturally flowed out me and others, allowing the experience of connectedness and love. One takeaway among many: We are all One and much more alike—sharing the same challenges of being Human. At the same time, our individual expressions are also so perfectly unique. The world craves our unique expressions of Love. Thank you Jessica for creating an environment I can experience this in!” ~Tama

Come and Play in the land of Spirited Improv!


Facilitator, Jessica Chilton, has delighted in Improv for 20 years.

I am so thrilled to be calling in playmates for this Spirited Improv group. So many highlights in my life have unfolded on stage. From being in the Playback Theatre Improv Company for 8 years, to leading events like "Spotlight Liberation" and "Shift from Fear to Love" and "The Shine Expansive," I love turning the stage into a loving place to see and be seen, a platform for transformation, and an amplification of the present moment. As a conscious coach, expressive arts therapist, retreat facilitator, performing artist, and 24/7 Mom, I weave improv into everything. It's simply what I was born to do!
