About the Event

This workshop will be an introduction to mindfulness and meditation and includes information on what mindfulness is and how you  can incorporate it in your personal life and your acting.

There are many parallels between mindfulness and acting. Both require  you to be in the moment, have clarity of thought, feel connected to and  aware of your surroundings as well as your body, mind and emotions. We  don’t always achieve this state in life. Similarly it is hard to feel a  sense of presence, focus and connection while acting. Often our mind is  commenting on how an audition or performance is going and we worry about  the outcome.

Mindfulness is a natural and an intuitive state of presence in which  we can feel more connected, real and alive. This can be immensely  helpful in life but also in acting. When practiced regularly mindfulness  can be a powerful way to retrain the mind and allow us to rediscover  the joy in acting (and life) and navigate our way through this  competitive and stressful industry. It is a practical skill that can  help to reduce stress, aid mental clarity and improve emotional and  physical wellbeing. 

This session will be practical and include meditations and mindfulness practices based on the 8-week MBSR course.

No prior meditation experience necessary.
