Learn & Train

While in rehearsal and in production, the company trains in an abundance of psycho-physical performance practices interwoven with spiritual practices that enhance and fine-tune the instrument of the conscious creator and performer. These practices strengthen the ensemble connection and the soul on its way to creative freedom and spiritual mastery. Satsang (Sanskrit for ‘spiritual discourse’, or ‘a sacred gathering for truth’) lies at the core of the exploration and development phase of any new production. It is from these practices that we create our custom tailored workshop programs to suit whomever we are working with.

  • Improvisation

We work intensively with the communities we feel most called to serve. These include: people suffering from long-term physical or mental illness, people in recovery from substance abuse or eating disorders, children and teenagers from disadvantaged backgrounds, immigrants, refugees, veterans, LGBTQ+ youth, and generally, people suffering from depression, anxiety and/or trauma.  

Whether we work with children from disadvantaged backgrounds, an adolescent in recovery, or an elderly person suffering from trauma and isolation - all can benefit deeply from holistic and creative practices. We offer programs custom tailored to the group and their specific needs and goals. In general, most people experience an inner expansion through communion with the deeper dimension within themselves, free play and authentic expression, and building skills of confidence, communication, and connection.

Testimonials

“I feel called to take time to tell you how profound, primal and life-changing your workshop was. I feel it to my core. I thank you for your gifts. I woke up on a high, and I’m still trying to process what just happened! Words can hardly fully describe the metamorphosis I’m currently undergoing, and how your workshop helped me feel as though I was just catapulted to another level or dimension. Again, I thank you. A thousand thank you’s wouldn’t be enough for how I feel right now.” - Kimmy Dekker

”Just wanted to thank you again for your guidance through an experience of such depth. Thoughts, emotions, feelings - known and unknown - came to surface. The space created felt safe and sheltered. Very home-y. Again, I’m very grateful for this and looking forward to another one in the future.” - Karola Rangel

”Just wanted to thank you all again for facilitating such an amazing workshop and event on Saturday. I had never attended such an event and didn’t really know what to expect. It exceeded any expectation I may have had! I am still processing it all, but so far have come away with increased strength in who I am and what I am doing, a stronger connection to like-minded individuals, and a clearer sense of where I want to go moving forward. Also, the experience of walking into the middle of the circle and looking each participant in the eye was one of the most profound experiences of my life. It moved me to the core. Just… WOW. So, thank you, thank you! I wish you all the best in your future undertakings and mission and will look for more opportunities to support all the beautiful things you are doing!” - Jason Brown

”Wow, what powerful and creative work you are doing! The workshop was so cathartic. The emotional release and awareness brought on by this experience has truly transformed me and given me the courage to use my voice and speak my truth. The work the Conscious Performers Collective is offering is so important and ground-breaking. You can feel that it all comes straight from the heart. Creations fueled by these kinds of intentions carry great potentiality. Our world is greatly benefiting from the beautiful works and offerings of the Conscious Performers Collective.” - Sofiya Mariya Sydoryak
