EFT For Performers
EFT: ENERGY IN PERFORMANCE
Reach new heights of performance, whatever your artistic practice.
“Within 24 hours of working with her I landed an on going position with a theatre company.” – Amberlee Jayde: actor
Sponsored by the city of Hobson’s Bay, this unique opportunity offers performers the chance to experience an Energy In Performance course at hundreds of dollars below usual cost. Only $120
Unleash your innate talent and break your own glass ceiling by understanding your energy system, how it operates, it’s impact on your performance and how to work with your energy to optimize your performance and career. In five sessions spread over 10 weeks you will work on a current performance piece and measure the improvements. Karen’s work combines EFT with physical and vocal exercises drawn from a variety of modalities including Laban, Feldenkrais and Alexander.
Due to the unique nature of this opportunity places are limited and there is an application process.
“I can’t thank you enough Karen – it was truly amazing and an incredibly rewarding experience and one that I would recommend to anyone wanting to extend themselves in their chosen field”. – Justine Anderson: Artistic Director 6 Degrees
“I have to say that the session is working already! That gig I thought I had missed out on, that I didn’t sing well enough – the guy rang this morning wanting me! – Rebecca Morton: Singer
General: Sessions & Workshops
Trauma can either fuel your artistic practice or block it. With our new understanding of the role of energy in releasing trauma you no longer have to be tied to your trauma in order to create and if trauma is inhibiting your work it can be released with EFT. Imagine creating from a clear space, not necessarily tied to your own history, coming from FLOW? If persistent physical habits are holding you back from achieving, EFT can eliminate them.
The gifted and magical child is in all of us and together we can use EFT to access this child.
Creativity not only requires clearing blocks in our own expressive pathways but also requires opening up our capacity for deep listening to others and our environment. Creativity is a dialogue with our environment.
Individual Sessions for Performers include a comprehensive vocal and movement analysis as well as identifying blockages that interrupt breath, impulse, authenticity and presence. You will be introduced to EFT and given exercises and strategies to address your specific needs. Together we will devise a plan for you to continue the work at home or in the studio.
Individual Sessions For Writers & Composers begin with a discussion of the current issues and may include some physical exercises, breath and impulse work and writing exercises. The session focuses on using EFT together to dissolve whatever blockages are hindering your creative progress.
Performers Workshops focus on acting and singing. Some of these workshops also introduce the performer to the basics of energy work. I work with the performer’s body drawing on the somatic methods of Laban Movement Analysis, Feldenkrais and the Alexander Technique to create a supple instrument that accesses the broadest physical pallet. Vocally I draw on the work of Kristen Linklater and Cecily Berry among others, to ground the voice in the body and release it from old habits that formed as a way to cope with distress.
Writing Workshops are informed by over 10 years experience teaching and lecturing in Creative Writing and Script Writing at the University of Melbourne and other universities in Victoria and the work of Tristine Rainer and Julia Cameron.
Energy Workshops focus on training artists to understand and manage their own energy systems for better life and artistic outcomes.
I am passionate about improving the quality of artists’ lives and enhancing their artistic practice. Your work deserves recognition so together let’s free your creativity, enhance your practice and boost your career.
