Example text

The communication of this inner expression is realized through concentration, along with the moment-to-moment relaxation process and the use of the senses. We observe the world through our senses. We have five (and the muchtalked-about sixth sense, which is another matter altogether). Our five senses bring us through the world each day, translating everything that we experience into a language that we understand. Then, through our senses, we are able to communicate back to the world around us. Our senses have a memory, a ship’s log, of everything we’ve experienced, encapsulated somewhere within.

They, too, are working, and their concentration is totally pinned on you while the camera is rolling. The actors’ close proximity to those around them requires a sense of a circle of concentration that is focused and strong, yet relaxed and easy. To sit in a public place while you know you have an agenda enables you to slowly start to become aware of what stops you from simply observing yourself and your surroundings. Also, the act of self-discovery, so exciting to see on the screen, begins to emerge in this simple exercise.

The first sensorial taste to introduce should be lemon. It’s a strong taste and causes many reactions within the mouth. Lick the tongue over the lips as if you had just sucked on a juicy lemon. Swallow; investigate the roof of the mouth. Ask questions: What happens to my lips if I taste a lemon? How does my tongue feel? Where do I taste the taste of lemon? Concentration TA S T E : T H E S E N S E O F TA S T I N G 27 Don’t worry if nothing happens. If you don’t taste the lemon, or for that matter don’t respond to any of the senses in your imagination at this point, remember these are concentration exercises.
