The Lucid Body Basics are the fundamental building blocks of a new language, a new insight into character diagnosis. We are ultimately offering the acting student or anyone interested in self expansion, a way to see and diagnose a person across from you, feel how to shift your own energy to meet the given circumstances of a character, or a boss, perhaps a client, and harness the sticks and stones from your own circumstances.
Holistic acting means that the act of acting is a benefit to your system, not a drain. Lucid Body is a holistic training, based on the belief that self knowledge, having the courage to unpack and look at the contents of that unpacking, will uncover the complexity of the psycho-physical self. Using Carl Jung’s theories of persona and shadow, you will start with understanding why we are the way we are. Then we can look a character in the face with honesty, or a client. This is me. Who are you? Lets meet and make magic, get something done.
The seven chakra energy centers will be introduced as tools to differentiate human behavior based on intent. While the root will protect you, the heart will express the soul secrets. Inspired by the ancient knowledge of the eastern yogic traditions, the LB process specifies the weight and resonance of each center as it affects our humanity. Exploring, uncovering, digging deeper, flying higher, you will move into new places of self, those small voices become large and those undetectable feelings, immense.
The first half of Basics focuses on alignment and learning the chakra energy centers as tools to step beyond the comfort zone. Exercises will be focused on transforming the habitual body into new parts of self.
The second half of Basics will work with the larger energies of the archetypes, the active space between two people as an intro to the later scene work, and will end with an exploration of the shadow. This work can be thrilling, though challenging.
