RESILIENCE AND BRAIN TRAINING FOR ACTORS AND PERFORMERS
Train your brain, harness your creativity, and build resilience, on and off the stage!
We help performing artists use mental practices to change their brain and body’s response to stressors that get in the way of their work, build inner resources and confidence, and help them rewire their brains to align with their biggest goals.CHOOSE YOUR PATH
Actors are professional feelers.
What happens when actors feel the stress of their roles and careers too much? They become susceptible to chronic stress, brain fog, reduced access to creativity and imagination, lowered confidence levels, all of which gets in the way of their creativity and imagination.
Luckily, brain training can help turn that around!

Think of us as your intimacy coordinator, but instead of between actors, the work is between the actor and their character.
Depending on your needs, we offer ongoing production support through auditions, rehearsals and performances, and we also offer one-time resilience workshops for your cast members to adopt on their own. We recognize that every project is unique and we cater to the needs of the production!
