"I was living in New York at the time and no matter what I did I could not figure out how to bring me, 100% of me, into an audition room. I was still booking jobs, but man, if they could only have seen me in front of my mirror at home! I realized that no acting coach in New York could teach me how to be me. What I really wanted was to be present and vulnerable and to stop judging myself or attempting to be what I thought someone else thought I should be. So I started asking questions. And when you ask a question, the universe sort of rearranges itself.
I stumbled into my first Access Consciousness™ class in hopes of handling some very mysterious health issues. To my total surprise, what I uncovered were the most brilliant set of tools to give me exactly what I had been asking for in my performing—a totally non-cognitive way to get out of judgment and have access to more of myself. When Gary Douglas (founder of Access) taught the first Creativity class in Los Angeles in 2005, I was awe struck. I knew I wanted to get these tools out into the world for performers, and non-performers, and everyone who has anything to say!!" - Blossom Benedict
