Our Founder Josh Pais was interviewed for the 99th episode of the Karen Kenney Show. Scroll down to listen!
When we don’t like something we give it a label – good or bad. This is especially true when it comes to how we’re feeling inside at heightened moments of stress. We then focus on how to control emotions rather than allowing ourselves to experience them all.
The truth is that those emotions we often try to reject or run and hide from are just simply “energetic patterns”. If you can think of them as creative impulses coming from our body then everything begins to open.
Josh dives into the philosophy and practical application of his acting classes. Rather than focus on how to control emotion, he teaches participants to let go of labels. He shows them how to stop suppressing their feelings, and instead, choose to fully connect with who we are and where we are in each moment.
In doing so, we can increase our tolerance for the unwanted feelings that arise and create deeper connections within ourselves, our creative work, our audience, and those around us.
