Take your Creativity to the Next Stage

This program is for participants who have experienced the depth and fun of Act Natural and are interested in digging even deeper into their creative process. Act Natural II continues to explore the actor’s process, including more detailed scene work, dramatic storytelling, improvisation, and collaboration. This follow-up to the popular Act Natural offers opportunities for richer connection with yourself and your fellow actors, plus practical, effective tools for problem-solving and enhanced self-expression.

"Creating relationship is the heart of acting. It is basic. It is essential.” Michael Shurtleff, casting director and teacher.

The art and craft of the actor begins with self-knowledge and self-acceptance, both of which are vital when accessing inner resources with mindfulness and ease. This experiential program provides myriad opportunities for self-discovery, enhanced presence, and deeper connection to your creative instincts.

The unique blend of actor-training techniques and Haven concepts offered in this program is applicable to a variety of vocations and lifestyles, and is particularly useful for people who lead, teach, facilitate groups, or engage in public speaking. Improvisation, scene work, breathing, and movement are all used to explore deeper contact with others and a renewed sense of yourself.

This program is for you if you would like to:

  • Enhance focus, presence, and confidence
  • Connect to yourself and others with clarity and compassion
  • Identify obstacles that block creativity and self-expression
  • Tap into your inner resources in aid of communication, connection, and effective engagement
  • Experience the fun of creative collaboration and storytelling

"Learn your lines, find your mark, look 'em in the eye, and tell 'em the truth.” James Cagney, actor
