WHAT'S NEW?
Mike MasiniMike Masini
I've been using all your principles to unleash my confident, natural abilities and know that I'm the character. The number one rule you teach that has been very effective for me is the character traits exercise. I take the three character traits (one being opposite) and really get them in my body and explore the dialog and script. I then improv to find where the character and I combine to a point where anything I do is a combination of both of us and the character is engrained in my body. Sande teaches you how to unleash yourself, become explosive, own your personality and infuse it into your work.

TRANSFORMATIONAL ACTING — INNER CHANGE

This is the ability of actors to utilize their current feelings and raw selves in order to transform who they are ... their emotional ranges and their psyches into that of the characters they portray. In doing so, they function, take action, and live the reality and lifestyle of these characters, without utilization of the past or imagining the future.

This is all accomplished by using what you, as the actor, are really feeling and who you are.  

The Future of Acting

By using your unique self, Transformational Acting gives you access to your creativity, humanity and the ability to take risks and work boldly.

A Beyond Sense Memory technique to develop your ability to use current emotions rather than recalling from the past. This enables actors to be completely in the present. The result is a brilliantly spontaneous and engaging performance that fulfills the intention of the material. TRANSFORMATIONAL ACTING prepares you to act in all mediums and helps open the actors creative process to assist you in creating your own material.

SANDE'S MESSAGES
    
Sande's Message 2009/2010



Many things as we know them to be have fallen apart. War continues, the economy has crumbled, our identities have been shaken.

But this is an opportunity to live on the Edge of Creation. Our normal tendency is to pull back and be informed by our history and patterns. But we have the ability, instead, to be propelled by Self Determination. The good element about living in uncertain times is that we can design this uncharted territory and redesign our lives.

9/11 came and shifted life as we knew it. We changed for a while. Our values were different. But it seems we mostly pulled it together, back in the direction that we once knew.

Hit again for the past 6 years (war) and then the economy, we’re still waiting for life to be “normal” and go back to the way we were.

I don’t think it will ever be the same. I hope it will never be the same. I don’t think it’s supposed to be the same. I don’t believe that’s the lesson.

A pulse of excitement replacing the fear has begun. A willingness to step forward, accept and live life differently, boldly, and with excitement making uncertainty our new comfort zone.

A new direction… we can shift our perception, get out on the edge of creation, and play out of the box. Living life, not just a copy of life as we knew it to be, but life as it can be. If not, I’m afraid, the messages will keep coming!

We have the ability to turn our lives, the Country, the world around by every new step we take.

Good thoughts, bright times and a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR where all good things are possible.


Wishing you many blessings for 20

Sande's Message 2009

The Future Is Just The Present As You Want It To Be.



Today's difficult world conditions give us the chance for new possibilities and opportunities. I want to be clear about the difference between opportunities and being opportunistic. Taking opportunities is an expansion process and works for everyone concerned.  Being opportunistic is concentric and self absorbing and creates burn-out.

Insist and be intentional about penetrating each moment so deeply that you find the opportunity present.

Our potential is the new frontier. We have the ability to change the world.

In class we work on transforming coding and raising our vibration levels for acting. But by transforming coding and raising vibration levels opens the doors to new opportunities and expanded possibilities.

Carry your own torch not your families.
Be the unique person your were meant to be.
Be your authentic self with your individual signature.
Allow truth to come in and opportunity to open up and the world will transform as you do.

Can you imagine a world filled with fulfilled possibilities!!


Wishing you many blessings for 2009
Sande Shurin & Bruce Levy

 

Sande's Message for 2008

       
ACTUALIZE YOUR POTENTIAL!

        Your potential is already in you along with the probabilities of your future projects. Take LEAPS            OF FAITH!  Everything is on the other side of challenging your fears and doubts. Say YES!,
                    Defy  convention and turn a slippery slope into an exciting one as you manifest your dreams.

        Blessings and good fortune in the new year.

        Bruce & Sande
        
       
         
        Sande's Message for 2007 

"PENETRATE THE DEEP WEALTH OF YOUR INNER RESOURCES, TAKE MEANINGFUL ACTION AND SOAR TO THE HEIGHTS OF A LIFE WELL LIVED"

"THRU DESIRE PLUS INTENTION WE HAVE PASSION"

    Desire also designs our inner raw material

    Thru our desires we have preferences

    Thru our preferences we take action

    Thru our actions we expand

    Thru our expansions the entire universe expands

Take meaningful action and experience the exuberance and exhilaration of being unstoppable.

To an extraordinary and unstoppable New Year.

Sande & Bruce

Sande's Message for the Year 2006

Miracles Still Exist.

We may be living through some of the most difficult times in history, and many of us may give up on miracles. But miracles only stop when we give up. Especially during these perilous times we must surrender to and trust the universe to show us the way. It is during this process of surrender and trust when doors to unexpected miracles occur.

When we say ³surrender² we don¹t mean stop. It is time to push our limits beyond our beliefs, push open our creativity beyond any limitations, and surrender to and trust the universe. Doors will appear that you never realized were even there and behind each of these new doors is a miracle.

Wishing you many new doors this coming year.

Sande and Bruce

Sande's Message for the Year 2005

We live in a world of limits, but the limits are self-imposed. No matter how graceful or difficult a life we choose, it is by choice, and our reality can be transformed, reshaped or altered at any time. The world of creativity and spirit are one. This is where intentions manifest and quantum leaps occur. Quantum leaps are unpredictable growths, events, experiences and capabilities.

Go beyond the edges of your world, as you now know it to be, into the world of creativity and spirit seeking a limitless life.

To success in 2005
Sande Shurin and Bruce Levy

Sande's Message for the Year 2004

A true artist looks at making a difference in the world with his art. This requires the artist to bring two seemingly disparate worlds together: the creative and spiritual with the physical.

The great creative breakthroughs happen when these two worlds align.

Our inner creative self, our awareness, our higher consciousness, our spirit, our soul, along with our body and actions can and do become one mind ... one purpose. The physical and the spirit are interwoven, the source of art and creativity emanating from the spirit and carried into through the physical.

Look for the inner invisible self--which lives within--to manifest through your entire body, your entire life. Create art, create life, manifest your dreams and express your purpose in every action you take, every thought you think, every deed you do.

Living your life in the "now," as we aspire to do in Transformational Acting, calls on the inner, creative self to align with the physical.

What a wonderful world this could be, living in the now, harnessing the creative/spiritual with the physical.

Natural, effortless peace?

Perhaps.
