Mindfulness and Drama

Mindfulness and drama go hand in hand and are inextricably linked, an integral part of each other.

Acting is a form of mindfulness. In mindfulness without judgement, we simply observe what is happening both physically and emotionally. Noting, identifying thoughts with an eye to detail. What actors are doing is being aware of what is happening around them, their physical senses, the emotions that are coming, their thoughts and words pass through them in service of a character. The more aware an actor can be the more they can portray a character more effectively.

During this workshop we will explore how Mindfulness and Drama can be used as a useful tool in our Dharma practice through various exercises connecting through our imagination with body, mind and heart.

So much of Buddhism can be explored through Drama. Come along and see!
