The Spectrum of Human Purposes

Module 3 in the Spiritual Psychology of Acting Course

Whilst our intentions are conscious, purposes are the subconscious driving force of all behaviour. Therefore, one of the cornerstone elements of great acting is a well-developed understanding of the nature, energies and dynamics of human purposes.

The essential skill of an actor is to define the subconscious purposes and objectives which drive the character, to programme them as mental images and then to fully embody them.

What will I learn?

Our purposes select our thoughts and experiences

As well as being fundamental to the study of the art and craft of acting, the knowledge of the spectrum of human purposes provides powerful tools and greater insight for anyone who wants to develop an in-depth understanding of the mechanics of the human psyche.

This naturally creates a deeper understanding of both ourselves and those around us, resulting in increased confidence, empathy, spontaneity and freedom from confining thoughts and self-limiting desires.

All students receive a detailed, up to date list of all of the human purposes, along with their clear definitions. This is an extremely valuable resource for any actor or anyone who wants to better understand the subconscious forces that drive them.
