Study the art of showing up, being open, sensitive, vulnerable, human, ridiculous, finding your special quality that connects you to others, being present and engaging to an audience, connecting and opening a channel between you and them.

This work helps us get unstuck. It teaches us to listen, to re-discover play, not to push too much or shy away but to let go and be attuned to the moment. It's a rudimentary practice for anyone.
