While on the beach lying down on a beach towel, closing your eyes, you can still work on your craft and learn new tricks...
How about learning about invisible mental preparation?
The beauty of mental preparation is that it is done in an invisible fashion, hidden behind closed eyes...
Most actors will do obnoxious warm ups that make you look like a weirdo in the waiting room or are down right impossible to do at a casting:
- strange warm up sounds
- intense stretching
- moving around
- lying down on the floor
- pretend you move like an animal
- tongue twisters
- big gestures
- rehearsing lines
What if you could do an invisible warm up, just sitting down on a chair, closing your eyes, and yet be as efficient, if not more?
Wouldn't you like to know that you can be super productive, while looking perfectly normal?
That's what the power of imagination is. The power of energy preparation.
In the book A BALANCING ACT, you will learn:
- how to prepare while closing your eyes
- how to connect with the energy of your character
- how to activate the creative actor within you
- how to separate from the voices in your head that constantly criticize or judge you while you perform
- how to create the given circumstances in the present and with your senses
- how to ground your work so it doesn't stay in your head but expand in your body
- and how to remain balanced throughout your work and career..

To me the most beneficial aspect of the energy work is beginning the character development process with a clear system. With this clarity you can begin work with an open mind, body, and energetic system. I currently use Emmanuelle's techniques in all of my performances."

Emmanuelle Chaulet’s work with the actress whom I directed was transformative. After their work together, Jude’s command of her character was indelibly set into place. As her director, my work with her on character ceased. I could then only step back and watch with profound engagement as she located – performance after performance – the heart of the role, conjuring her character with confidence, clarity, humor and grace. Emmanuelle Chaulet is an alchemist.

"It is rare to find a subject that urgently needs to be discussed and about which too little is written. The need to train the entire being of the performing artist is just such a subject. Emmanuelle Chaulet's A Balancing Act is a godsend to performing artists of any sort. Knowing how to Energize allows us to endure and even thrive during the rise and fall, the constant state of transformation, the juggling of feelings, styles, jobs, and colleagues while maintaining an even keel."
