Audible Editor Reviews

Acting is often a physically demanding job, but many actors don't realize that there are techniques that can help them open up their bodies in order to inhabit the characters they play. Narrator Tamara Scott's mature, gentle voice takes listeners through the process of creating the "lucid body" by exploring the seven chakra centers which stimulate the consciousness. Scott demonstrates voice and breathing techniques excellently, giving listeners very clear examples and guidelines to follow. Her expert use of tone - which ranges from soothing and calm to dynamic and inspirational - will lead listeners into the correct mindset to help them hear what their inner bodies are saying.

    "A Wonderful Conceptual Framework for the Actor"

    I've been pursuing acting as a profession for just under a year and I have tried to study and train as much as possible in that relatively short period of time. I feel extremely fortunate to have come across this book. It's based on the premise that actors can use the different chakras, or energy systems, present in each person to make authentic characters which truly embody attributes different from our own. Even if you feel reluctant about buying into the spirituality inherent in the concept of chakras (I would count myself among this group), you don't have to commit to any belief system or even believe chakras exist in actual fact. You could take the pragmatic approach and act as if those energy centers exist and I believe you can still tap into the power and wisdom of this technique.
