"In the work of the theatre the Holy actor, so named because of their deep connections to the ancient healing powers of the shamans who were the first actors on this earth, must grapple with all aspects of human nature, live it, breathe it and if the play is written right, heal the pain of it and rejoice in the joy of it. I have moved through many layers in this journey and worked with many wonderful shamans and healers, actors and teachers."
Sue's work in theatre, film and television has had her tread a most unusual path towards this discovery of breakthrough techniques to facilitate self-healing and self-empowerment in our lives. Theatrical tour-de-forces such as Near Ms's and Slice of Her Life certainly stand as monuments to her own powers to heal herself and others as well.

which allows them to experience the flow of the two major energies, which can be named as the Manifesting and Liberating Currents; one moves down from the crown and the other moves up from the earth. utilisation of these two forces enable the student to first recognise then clear and release energy blocks from the body. These blocks show up in the physical body but when they are given tools for both recognising and releasing them on an emotional level first, the body stays clear and fully usable.
Male and Female Energies - Concepts of Yin & Yang.
Through guided meditations, artwork and dance the students recognise the inner flow of these two uniting and opposing forces. bring them into balance, enhancing the levels of trust within their own body- ownership; recognising and increasing the delight in their own gender; learning to see where a character is out of balance and consequently where either energy can determine character traits.

Creating and Destroying.
