The Unlimited Actor method was created by healer and acting coach Nancy Mayans.
The Unlimited Actor is an inspiring new paradigm in actor training. Instead of focusing on a character's thoughts and actions, it focuses on the character's Energy which naturally created those thoughts and actions in the first place.
Based on my years of experience as an Energy healer, I've learned that all physical, mental, emotional and spiritual states create specific colors and patterns in a person's aura. As an actor, you can train first to sense these colors and patterns and then to shift them to exactly match any character's reality you want! The exercises are easy, fun and illuminating. The result is complete transformation - inspired, truthful, organic behavior, with an acting range beyond anything you've imagined.
The Unlimited Actor training will expand your own commitment to acting. It will ignite an energy in you that will magnify all the other acting techniques you have, and bring a greater depth and reality to the characters you play.

Your Magical Doorways: the Chakras. One special focus in The Unlimited Actor training is on the 7 magical chakras, the main subtle energy centers of the body. Through sound, color, laughter and dance, we will open these centers to access all parts of yourself. The chakras, as they develop, allow you to: Ground and Feel Secure; Exude Self-Confidence; Sharpen Your Focus; Access your Emotional Depth; Increase your Imagination; Create a Radiant Presence. You will move into your "creative zone".
Once you learn to open these doorways, we will play with varying degrees of openness in order to regulate your energy flow, to specifically match it to the life force of a particular character. We will also play with specific images, patterns and colors to create the exact energetics of the character you are portraying--not only the physical mannerisms, the emotional state and the character’s mental disposition, but also the unique essence of the character’s true nature.
