I am 57 years old and have worked in theater for at least 40 years in one way or other. I had expected to learn, to reconnect, to be delighted. I had not necessarily expected to be transformed. Thank you for that.
You...have provided bridges: between people in ways that you can’t know and between aspects of our lives as teachers: a passion for the contemplative and artistic life, a link between the goofy and the profound, a link between the honed intellect and the intuitive creative center. So this gives me the chance to acknowledge that. If you want to follow your own improv advice and “Just be average, just be good enough, and strive to be brilliant,” I’m afraid you’ve failed. You’re...brilliant. Thanks for sharing your work with us.

The balance of instruction was wonderful. To have some activities be individually led and lots of team leading felt authentic and balanced. The playfulness, respect, and admiration [you showed] made me feel cared for, supported, seen, and appreciated. [You] did a great job of creating a safe, inclusive space and encouraging everyone’s engagement at their own pace. [You] modeled everything visually/verbally so that everything was always easy to understand and never felt threatening…even the risk-taking moments were clothed in fun/meaning because of the genuine love [you] have for this work.

Within each of us lies an original spark, a mysterious impulse that turns matter into motion and draws breath into the body. It’s the same force that pushes a weed through concrete, guides a salmon upstream, and leads a caterpillar to its cocoon. It’s what leads us to grow, to search, to smile, to reach for another. It’s life’s resounding “Yes!” to the question “Am I here?” It’s Anima.
ANIMA Learning programs honor that spark and feed its full fruition. We design and deliver interactive experiences to call forth the wisdom of individuals and the shared intelligence of groups. Our programs bust open traditional limits by integrating four related streams: growth mindset, contemplative practice, applied improvisation, and positive reinforcement. We reinvigorate your natural curiosity and help you find new levels of courage, creativity and connection.
We’re all born to learn. ANIMA helps you rediscover—and reactivate—that truth.
