Ask yourself: What do great leaders, thinkers, artists, athletes and visionaries all have in common?

Is it…

Lots of money?

Not all of them. Especially not when they are starting out.

Innate talent?

Not necessarily. When you read memoirs or watch documentaries about these people’s journeys, you learn that their “gifts” did not always come easy.

The Answer: A Stillness Practice

What do I mean by this?

It’s about connecting inward to the source of your creativity, something we absolutely need as actors and all too often forget about.

Watch below and see what I mean!

I hope this helps! Comment below and let me know what stillness practice you practice now or would like to try.

They are ready to make a greater impact, which looks like building communities of collaborators, creating their own opportunities, and developing residual income streams. Ajarae believes that actors play a huge role in bringing forth a reality where every being on the planet is safe and valued, and The Table empowers actors to claim their seat.
