LOVE HARDER

Someone asked me the other day how I deal, how I get through tough stuff, how I relate to people, relationships, work, life...etc. Well, the answer is sometimes I hate everything and think every crappy thought possibly, but mostly I live by these tenants of LOVE HARDER and am deeply rewarded for it: 1: "Do no harm & take no shit". I find it works beautifully in every situation wherein I have control. It has yet to let me down in any way. 2. "Be realistic about what you can and cannot control". 3. "Everyone you speak to has something hard going on elsewhere in their lives, be gentle". 4. "Take nothing personally" And if it does hit you on a personal level, what ever it is, address it immediately so you can get back to giving zero fucks about it as quickly as possible. 5. "Be honest". 6. "Give more love than you expect to receive and revel in the love that is returned to you". 7. "Remember that children are the future, teach them well and let them lead the way. Show them all the beauty they possess insiiiiiideeeee. Give them a sen.....(you get it)". 8. Trust yourself. Trust others. Trust the moment. 9. Everything is temporary, everything, every single thing. 10. The earth is tiny in the larger scope, which makes you even tinier. What a relief of pressure it is to see how tiny you are in the greater scope of things. You are just one beautifully unique being in an infinite, unfathomable universe. And you only exist for one teeny tiny blip in time. How amazing and beautiful that is...

An introduction...

WE: A new workshop designed to strengthen the two person scene.

Over the last two years I have carefully studied the two person scene. I have identified common strengths and weaknesses, traps and roadblocks. I've used this study to create some very uncommon tools toward bolstering the two person scene, finding connection, shared focus and spontaneous trust. This workshop takes the daunting task of navigating creativity and simplifies the business of finding one another, taking each other in and building a shared world together.

Please contact me if you, your group, your school or your theater are interested in hosting this workshop.  I am presently organizing another teaching tour and would love to put you on my itinerary.
