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.

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Nov 12, 2019

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

Try something new with uncommonly delicious (and ugly) fruit

Nov 12, 2019

As I savor one of my just-picked American persimmons (Diospyros virginiana), I'm reminded how this fruit — and a few other delectable fruits — would never sell. Why not? Because they're ugly! Although the persimmons hung from the branches as handsome, plump, orange orbs up to a few weeks ago, by now they have shriveled and their skins are darkening to brown and black. The texture and flavor have likewise changed. They once were like dried apricots that have been plumped up in water and then dipped in honey with a dash of spice. Now, they've become mushier, with some...

Millennial Money: Secrets of a Black Friday Shopper

Nov 12, 2019

My husband and I have a Thanksgiving routine. Before the family arrives or the turkey is carved, we gather in the living room. As Christmas music plays in the background, he turns on his laptop, and I mine. That's when the deal hunt begins. Some people cringe at the thought of shopping on Thanksgiving or Black Friday, but I revel in it. Maybe it's because I love a good bargain, or because I write about how to save money. Whatever the reason, I know a lot about Black Friday. And I'd like to share some secrets with you. SHOPPING EARLY...

3-2-1-Cookoff! Astronauts to bake cookies with new test oven

Nov 12, 2019

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Forget reheated, freeze-dried space grub. Astronauts are about to get a new test oven for baking chocolate chip cookies from scratch. The next delivery to the International Space Station — scheduled for liftoff this weekend — includes the Zero G Oven. Chocolate chip cookie dough is already up there, waiting to pop into this small electric oven designed for zero gravity. Sample cookies baked just this week are also launching from Virginia on Northrop Grumman's Cygnus capsule, for the six station astronauts. The experiment explores the possibility of making freshly baked items for space travelers. With...
