FAQs

What is the Lucid Body Technique?

The Lucid Body is a psycho-physical process that offers the fundamental building blocks of a new language, a new insight into the complexities of the human. We are ultimately offering the student a way to embody the different parts of self with a deep visceral truth to enhance self-expansion. You do not have to be an actor to take this course. It is for anyone with a wide curiosity to go beyond the confinements we find ourselves in. This is the time and space to shed and spread, break out and believe in change.


I've never taken an LB class before. Is this retreat for me?

Yes. You will learn the fundamentals of the process, which we will apply to your creative devising work. This workshop is about creating from the body and listening to the voices that need to be heard in an environment that is wild and uncensored.


What should I expect from the LB classes during the retreat?

There will be a physical warm-up and exercises that will bring parts of self to the surface during every class. The child, the Warrior, the Schemer, all these archetypes and shadows will be explored thru the lens of the chakra energy centers. Then you will each have time to carve these voices into an arc of text and movement to be shared with others. The personal moves to the universal, as we allow our discoveries to have a voice.


Do I need to prepare or memorize anything?

No.

I was hoping to learn something new and apply it for the duration of the week so it is in my body, mind and heart! I absolutely achieved it 200% with the help of all teachers!

Incredible, very recharging, and everything was far better than I imagined it could be. I found my purpose again, my passion and gift for acting, and I was able to just be present for a week. I got so much out of it Can't say enough about Jenna and the acting teachers there. They created a space that was welcoming and exciting. The food was unbelievable. It takes just a few moments to adjust, coming from the city, but soon you're waking up to howler monkeys as the sun rises and experiencing life and nature in a way that's rare nowadays, at least where I'm from in LA.
