aka The Workshop
“Outward bound for the soul”
“An awakening of your passion”
“A fun way to feel your feelings”
A two-day journey of fun and self-exploration focusing on “what works” about you. A “hands-on” experience where one-to-one, and group interactions, including role-playing, structured improvisation, guided streams of consciousness and relaxation practices enable you to explore your fears and open your heart.
We are currently organizing the next Workshop to take place either at the end of August or the beginning of September. If you are interested in possibly participating, please contact us.
About The Workshop
The Workshop is a two-day journey of fun and self-exploration focusing on “what works” about you. It is a “hands-on” experience where one-to-one, and group interactions, including role-playing, structured improvisation, guided streams of consciousness and relaxation practices enable you to explore your fears and open your heart. Through this unique blend of acting techniques and personal growth exercises, The Workshop gives you the opportunity to experience your feelings in a safe, fun-filled, nurturing and creative arena where the Ego is quiet and the Spirit begins to speak.
The Workshop is the core essence of all we do at Open Door Acting, our classes, our theatre and film content, our philosophy and practice. It is who we are as individuals and as a group. The Workshop has existed for over 30 years. And has been taken by every sort of person and artist; successful working actors, house wives, people in business, health and wellness… you name it, they’ve come through our doors and all have left with a deeper experience of themselves, more ease, more truth, more ownership of who they are at their core.
Walk along your own path of self-realization
Harmony, ego, karma, mind, courage, relaxation… Just some of the words I will use in trying to explain this two day journey of self-exploration. As people we are always in search of that place and time where harmony once existed; where the ego is quiet. We all know the feeling because at one time or another, the child in us felt it. What if you could bottle that up and take it out whenever you wanted?
The Workshop is designed to let you see your own emotional blocks in terms of your own peace of mind. We walk you through techniques that immediately help you clear these blocks from your mind and body. From this clarity being in the moment one hundred percent is a given. No longer will the voice in your own head speak louder than your own. Old attachments lose the power they once had over you.
As individuals the parents we’ve chosen, the social, economic and physical conditions of our past up until now have a great deal to do with our karma; which more than anything dominates our current state of MIND. As we think, so we are. Fortunately for everyone, karma has three distinctly different paths; the path of self-realization, the path of our past and the path of fear. As individuals it’s the path of self-realization where we feel the most alive. Unfortunately it is also the most confronting. COURAGE is the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face his demons head on; to have conviction in one’s beliefs despite criticism. This Workshop will, if nothing else, help you see and feel what it’s like to walk along your own path of self-realization. Believe me your body will be thankful even if it’s only for two days. Because it will never forget what it’s like to be so true to it’s self. It truly is a healing process.
“It is a rare experience that comes into your life and touches you deeply. It moves you, actually shakes you up. It allows you to see who you are, who others are and what life really is. These are the moments that change your life for the better. The Workshop is that experience.”
Krysia Plonka, Television Producer
“The Workshop is a weekend full of realization, powerful personalities, self- evaluation, inner peace, fun and relaxation. It helped me to get in touch with my strengths, talents and aspirations. A must experience for anyone who wants to learn more about themselves.”
Willett Bird, Financial Consultant
“Although never having the intention of being an actor, by experiencing these acting techniques, The Workshop helped me to connect with feelings I rarely express. With amazing guidance and support, I found myself taking risks I never thought I could.”
