This Month’s Focus

Part Three: Actor’s Faith

Today’s Class

Imagination Practice (Part One)

Today’s Target

​​We live with tiny weights tied to the strings of our imagination.

​Spending all day with a Daily Body and Intellect that knows our limits.

​That knows exactly what is not possible.

​What cannot be done.

​In our artistry section we are wisening our instrument daily. Doing the work to build a magnet - a hunger (!) - inside our soul leading us to success in the moment … it’s life work.

But we want muscles now.

​We want to break free of limitation.

We want to grow possibility.

And we want to taste it now.

​Today, we’re introducing a powerful new muscle-building practice to grow your Actor’s Faith and unleash limitless possibility in your instrument’s imagination.

It’s time for the first part of our EA Imagination Practice.
