Why Train In The Spiritual Psychology of acting?

Have you ever experienced any of the following?

  • Doubting the quality of your work 
  • Feeling unprepared when presented with opportunities 
  • The fear of failure and rejection 
  • Acting classes that promote suffering and lead to burnout 
  • Abusive acting teachers that destroy your confidence
  • The nagging feeling that you aren’t fulfilling your potential

All too often, talented students are subjected to teaching methods and methodologies that deflate their confidence and their ability to fulfil their potential. In contrast, The Spiritual Psychology of Acting is designed to nurture your natural abilities and give you the tools you need to succeed. 

Our courses have been developed to alleviate the biggest obstacles to great acting, namely: A lack of sound knowledge, and the burden of the actor’s own psychological and emotional baggage.

Acting is a complex art form and therefore needs to be studied in detail. ‘Quick fixes’ only lead to frustration, requiring more work further down the line. Studying the Spiritual Psychology of Acting will provide you with a reliable frame of knowledge and the right technique to do your job properly. 

If you want to take your acting to the next level and advance confidently in your career, this course is for you. 

“Through conscious technique, we pave the way to subconscious creativity”

– Konstantin Stanislavski

What you will learn

The Spiritual Psychology of Acting course creates truly inspirational actors and people.

Across the 6 modules of the course, you will gain a clear understanding of your real Self and the, often subconscious, dynamics of your own character. You will learn the fascinating laws of psychology, which will enable you to fully understand how your own character formed and how it creates your behaviours and responses in life.  This will equip you with a reliable frame of reference to serve as a solid template for creating any character, in any medium, style or genre.

You will learn how to effectively analyse any script, establish its essential themes and make choices that serve the play of film as a whole. You will also be provided with the skills and detailed, practical knowledge to help you to dive deep into the character’s psyche to uncover how they specifically think and feel in each scene. Most importantly, you will develop cutting-edge techniques to allow you to fully embody and get ‘under the skin’ of any character.

The Spiritual Psychology of Acting has been carefully created to help you go to the next level, no matter where you are in your life and career. Over the full 150 hours of the training, you will learn how to approach your work with confidence, integrity and inspiration.

The training will set you free, both as a person and as an actor. On completion of the course you will know, both in theory and in practice, how to do your job properly, with confidence in your ability to create memorable and compelling characters.

The purpose of the Spiritual Psychology of Acting is to produce actors and performers who are a joy to work with and ultimately a joy and inspiration to watch.

Each session starts with meditation to focus your attention.
The weekly course is presented live on zoom and recorded.
We recommend you take written notes as it is the most effective way for information to go from short to long term memory.

"I always felt plagued by a sense of inadequacy in my work, and a constant feeling of inconsistency. Since training with John, all of that has completely changed. Ultimately, the result speaks more effectively than words I can write. If you are serious about acting, then this course is not to be missed."
