Happy 2018 to all!
I was blessed to spend Christmas with my mom and brother, and was back in L.A. for New Year's. It took me a few days to feel like I was ready to take action for the new year, but now things are definitely being moved forward in my life and I couldn't be more thankful.
On the acting front, I have just started on-going weekly classes at the Brian Reise Acting Studio with Brian Reise. Classes are scene study but new each class and genre-oriented. George Clooney, Norman Reedus, and many more have studied here. More info at: http://brianreiseacting.com/index.html. I am also for the month of January taking Commercial Auditioning classes with casting director Laurie Records. Both of these were at the request of my agent and I am so happy to be delving into it at the beginning of the year. More info on Laurie Records here: https://www.laurierecordscasting.com/. I also finished the 11 day Get In Gear program by Bonnie Gillespie who wrote Self Management for Actors just last week, which gave me some clarity as to my next steps in my career. Definitely recommend!
I have also been cast as a lead in a SAG-AFTRA webseries I am so excited about is planned to be filming this fall and the promo this month!
In other areas of life, I am leaving working at The Green Man Store and now besides my private practice, am solely dedicated to working at Liberate Emporium and Liberate Hollywood. I am also starting to teach Oracle Yin Yoga every Friday 12 - 1 pm, lead a Dhammapada Buddhist Meditation every Friday 5:30 - 6:30 pm starting 1/19, and starting in March am leading a Faerie Meditation the 2nd Wednesday of each month 7 - 8 pm, all at Liberate Hollywood. I am studying many things still and business is picking up nicely. I am happy to be working at the Liberates! It feels like family.
A new exciting project is being brainstormed right now with my friend and it's so exciting to put the writing hat on again.
Spiritually, I am working with sun energy lately - sunstone, sun spells, Goddess Isis, and sun visualizations. Such a bright start to the year! I hope you all are doing well. Perhaps sun energy can help you as well. This time of year can be overwhelming. It's important to remember your power and to be optimistic to endless possibilities. Something I keep learning over and over again is that blessings and miracles are coming to us all the time; we just have to be open to them.
