Improvisor's Pre Show Meditation

Here's a meditation I've written to say to yourself before a show.
The aim is to create more awareness before you go on that will lead to great moments on stage.


I'm happy to be here doing this. This is a privilege. 

I'm going into this with my eyes and ears open. They are my collaboration tools. 

I'm also going into this with lots to say, so I'll always be ready. 

When I'm in this, I'll listen to the crowd and connect with them. 

When I'm in this, I'll listen to my fellow players and connect with them. 

I'm here to create something completely new when this happens. 

I am going to say "yes" to make this better.

I relieve myself of my fixed perception of my inadequacies. This is where anything can happen. 

I embrace who I am right now and give myself permission to enjoy myself at this.

I'll enjoy the other improvisors too.  In this, I'll turn jealousy and frustration into appreciation and celebration.

This is my moment. 
This is our moment. 
This is fun. 
This is now.

My goal is to "be in the now" when I perform on stage, when I teach, and in the biggest moments of my life. These are the lessons I've learned along the way.

Want to do a great thing? Say YES to a good thing! Or be stuck with no- thing.  Planning, brainstorming, and collaborating are HARD. ...
