The Ever-Changing Moment 

Life, no matter how it may appear to be the same, never repeats itself and is in constant change and flux. The creative life force, like the ocean, is forever flowing with one momentary wave of newness arising and subsiding after another. We hit false notes in life and in art when we want what IS arising to be different from what IS arising. Life and Art are not two. They are ONE. Each time you work with the text-truth, whether for the first time or the fiftieth, it's truly always for the first time or you could say for the

I will show you, in what I call The Artist's Gym, how to develop inner artistic muscles that build remarkable trust and confidence in venturing forth in a creative exploration of text and truth that produces the most exciting, unpredictable and memorable Not Acting Artists.
