Ep. #109 I Got Covid A.K.A. A Private Lesson in NOT Wrestling with Reality

I’m super lucky (and grateful) that the worst part of having Covid (for me) was emotional pain. In this episode, I dig into the difference between painful sensations (like a cough) and painful emotions (like guilt), and why it is so important to experience them both.  This distinction is so important for physical performers in high stakes circumstances like dancers and choreographers. In this episode, I explain that managing your mind around a circumstance isn’t the same as choosing happy thoughts.  If you are a person who is a HUMAN, this one’s for you, and this is what you’ll learn: The difference between physical and emotional pain. What happens when we avoid both types of pain. Why avoiding our unwanted emotions is dangerous.

Ep. #105 Question of the Year: What Makes Someone an Artist?

Last year, my final episode was a compilation episode. Every single guest from the season took a stab at answering the same question: What is the difference between technique and style? I enjoyed that episode and all of those conversations so much, I decided to make a tradition out of it.   This year, I asked every guest a question, but I switched it up a bit…  Here we are, closing our year season with every guest’s answer to the question: WHAT MAKES SOMEONE AN ARTIST?  Get ready to be a part of the conversation, and walk away with your very own answer to a very simple yet remarkably hard question.
