Maggie Flanigan Studio Posts Article And Video On Reiki Class For Actors

June 19, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Maggie Flanigan Studio, which is based in New York City, has announced that they have recently published an article and a video from Laura Pensiero, one of the teachers of the reiki class for actors at the studio. In the article by Laura Pensiero on the studio’s website and the video on YouTube, she stresses the importance of letting go of the work in preparation for the role and being present in the moment. She wants to emphasize that this is the final step in the acting process and it is a challenging and critical step that the actor must take.

Laura Pensiero explains, “When you train the mind to be present through meditation letting go and being present becomes more comfortable and more natural to do while acting.” The reiki acting teacher points out that most actors try to attain perfection. Thus, they will focus on various studies and developments regarding every aspect of the acting process. This involves intellectual work but this can cause the actors to overthink, which results into disconnected and indicated acting.

Laura Pensiero says that actors could be thinking about the next scene or next moment, which makes them removed from the present. She wants to emphasize that actors need to focus on one step at a time and move from one moment to another moment, which keeps them connected and present. She points out that something as simple as breathing fully can help in the letting go process. This is because breathing can help release tension and anxiety. It makes actors aware of their body, which in turn allows them to be present. Breathing can help keep the body and mind calm, which allows the work to flow.

According to Laura, another effective technique to remain in the present is for actors to take a moment to feel their feet on the ground. By being aware of where their feet and the floor meet, the nervous energy is eliminated and actors are able to move into their body.

However, Laura warns actors that while the above-mentioned techniques seem to be simple and easy, they might be easier said than done. This is why she recommends that actors engage in at least five minutes of meditation everyday. She believes that meditation can have a profound impact on the actors’ life and acting. Also, mantras can help the mind to focus during meditation.

Another important technique that Laura recommends is healing light visualization. In this technique, actors will need to close their eyes and imagine a ball of healing light in front of them. They will need to visualize the size, color, and temperature of the sun. And as they breathe, they will imagine the light traveling into their body, flowing through their body, and around their body. They will then visualize the healing light to release their tension and provide them with deep inner peace. When actors train the mind to be present through meditation, it becomes easier for them to trust that they exist in the current state. By practicing daily meditation, letting go and being present will become more natural and more comfortable while acting.

Maggie Flanigan had established the studio in 2001 with the goal of helping people aspiring to be actors. She had taught at the New York City acting classes of William Esper and also for the MFA Acting Program at Rutgers University. From 2006 to 2012, she had engaged the help of Charlie Sandlan to develop the reputation of the studio as the best when it comes to professional actor training. This excellent reputation was developed after they have created various classes, such as Business I and II classes, Film History, Anatomy for Actors, Theater History, and Script Analysis.

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who modernized Oman, dies at 79

Jan 28, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died. He was 79. The British-educated, reclusive sultan reformed a nation that was home to only three schools and harsh laws banning electricity, radios, eyeglasses and even umbrellas when he took the throne. Under his reign, Oman became known as a welcoming tourist destination and a key Mideast interlocutor, helping the U.S. free captives in Iran and Yemen and...

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Jan 28, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Jan 28, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs.
