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. 

''Our aim is to create the life of a human spirit
and express it in a beautiful, artistic form''
