Awakening Your Instrument And Truthful Acting
When you’re acting in a high-pressure situation like a big audition or on-set, you might feel nervous or blocked and “cut off” from your character. It might feel like your instrument is asleep.
But the acting is the art of being fully alive.
What does “fully alive” mean?
When you were a child, you were always playing, never thinking about how you should act or if it was good. You were just in the moment, immersed in the experience of the play. Now as an adult, you’ve become concerned with doing it ‘right’ and people-pleasing.
When you watch my training you'll discover that you’re all born with an instinct and emotions that are conditioned and taught to be repressed as you grow up. You’re told who to be, what to do and how to behave... with consequences for not obeying. Whenever you did ‘act out’ and express big emotions, you probably felt shame from your parents and others for it.
It’s the same principle for you as an actor. Because you’ve been consistently trained to not feel, you haven’t been using your instrument. Sometimes when you’re acting you might get moments where you are really free and in-the-moment, but it’s ad hoc and you don’t know how you got there.
It’s not consistent and certainly not sustainable for a professional actor.
What we do in the Reset Journey from Resistance to Freedom we reset yourself to what nature made you for and guide you on the path of Truthful Acting.
We work through the resistance and conditioning which is blocking you from being your true self, so you get back to the place you were born with.
I don’t teach you anything. There isn’t a method to learn to become fully alive. It simply can’t be taught.
I’m not helping you improve. I just help you reawaken the freedom and instinct you were born with but has been lying dormant. You can be in the zone all the time like the creative, instinctive artist you were born as.
