April Hava Shenkman, Performance Artist, Writer
“I was pleasantly surprised by the way in which we tackled the material. The part of the journey that stands out in my mind the most is when you had me do the word- breath exercise which allowed the words to fully drop into my body while my mind was relaxed.
This brought up a myriad of emotions in me which words can‘t fully describe. I truly appreciate the spiritual approach taken towards the piece and honor the process completely.
On the sub-conscious level I’m sure things are/”magic” is going on that I consciously can‘t comprehend. Thank you for sharing that time with me and bringing your divine energy into the space.”
Theron Cook, Actor
A Full explanation of the work by one actress:
“Since studying one-on-one with Sea Glassman I’ve been on a steeper learning curve than I can remember… Because of my background in a spiritual practice, I felt that I could only get back into acting, my great passion, if I could find a coach who would combine a sensitivity to the soul, my soul, everybody‘s soul, the world‘s soul, with this great form of expression: Acting!
I found her. Sea is absolutely amazing.
A studied actress herself, Sea Glassman brings in years of experience as a healer and intuitive, and has a way of ‘scanning‘ you, as if she were to look directly into your energy field, where she determines -in a radar like way-, what your hooks and blocks are BEFORE you begin to even touch on material.
Then she does about six weeks, in my case of One-on-One work, (which I highly recommend, so you get all of her for yourself, in which she prepares you to get to zero! The ‘cleaning the slate’ work, ‘coming to neutral’, that we know from acting training, well, Sea goes back even further than that. She begins before zero. She believes in order for your bedrock, your foundation as an actor to be fertile and solid, you can not just begin where you are at now. No, you first have to heal that which is blocking you. We started chipping away at the blocks that stood between myself and my clean slate, my open road, my vast sky of possibilities as an actress. I had several blocks. You name it: A germanic hook (my dad’s German), a load of doubt, severe resistance, the urge to look pretty (!), and the need to control. All masking the big one: Fear. Phew.
… with Sea’s incredibly, and I mean INCREDIBLY patient and gentle guidance, before, during and in between our weekly session, (and sometimes longer when the resistance/fear was too great to continue) I made it all the way to my clean slate and to beginning the material, which now, since we have done all this intense preparation, seems rather breeze-like. Sort of like a reward.
… due to Sea‘s unique techniques and exercises, I am doing my best work. I had several experiences in my past acting training in which the performances I delivered came through me from ‘that’ place that is magic. Those moments which you live for as an actor, I guess. And my problem was, I did not know how I had done it. And I did not know how to do it again and again and again. So, I knew THIS is what I needed a coach for. To teach me how to do the magic that impacts others and makes myself feel like I‘ve just been touched by God.
In the past, in acting class, I felt sort of left to my own wits to figure it out. Not with Sea. She’ll guide you DIRECTLY. She‘ll give you the perfect tools for finding THE PRESENT MOMENT, or she‘ll give you a breathing exercise, or whatever, but she will guide you to your harvest. The other thing about Sea Glassman is: She does not believe in brutalizing her students. If there is a block, great, it gives her something to work with to get to the gold, that‘s how she sees it, and the results are AMAZING. It‘s a little bit like Alchemy. And the name “mystery school‘ is well chosen for her acting school.
While using Sea’s techniques, I have felt that the whole world of the character I am investigating is being ‘downloaded‘ into my conscious and I guess my subconscious selves too. The result is that I am FULL: emotional, real, present, expansive, alive.
Alive! This is one of the side effects that you may experience when you study with Sea. Your sense of being in the moment, being present, knowing yourself, and feeling intensely passionately ALIVE, yes, may well be noticed. You may also find yourself connecting more with others. In short, you are healing!
I am immensely grateful that someone such as Sea exists. That she exists here and that she has the vision of creating an acting school that will make a mark in the industry, as it will be a place from where artists will come forth that are coming from a place of deep integration with their whole selves when they perform. I am proud to be one of her students.
Well equipped with meditative and breathing preparation, and character work, which I have not even mentioned here, but which she teaches so organically, and straight to the point, so potently, that it clothes the prepared actor who is now ready to enter any audition space, any stage, and read opposite the most intimidating of partners… because when you know your Self and have your own soul as a foundation to build on, you know innately that you are a gift to those who come your way. And from that place of beingness, from that sigh, comes expansion, connection, gratitude and a celebration of the arts. And this, I guess, is what this is all about. The path that we are on. Oh, one last thing. With Sea, the acting journey does become about the journey, not the Oscar at the end of it. And that puts you back into a place from which you can ENJOY it all……
I am also beginning to understand that what an actor needs to do is to immerse herself in life, in many various life situations and relationships and endeavors, so that she can get to know herself in those circumstances, and then, is able to draw from that for her performances. I see where compassion is the key to entering the other… and that entering the other is the key to ‘being them‘…
i am filled with joy and gratitude as i step, or rather glide, from one Now into the next. I am immensely grateful. I’m thrilled… and can’t wait to continue with our work…Thank you.

“I highly recommend this course. Sea has changed my acting career as well as my life after a 15min session. I was lost, confused and had given my power to others. Sea helped me gain focus, clarity and empower myself. My life has changed drastically since working with Sea – I got myself out of a bad living situation immediately, my acting is intense, focused and uninhibited, plus I am in complete charge of my life.”
EMMA OWEN, London, Actress
Sea Glassman is a gift who appeared in my life at the perfect time. This kind of serendipity is part of who she is. Seemingly magically, yet firmly grounded in reality and practicality, Sea‘s spiritual coaching powerfully and compassionately gave me insights directly into my soul. Almost immediately, she helped me see a major emotional block that’s been restricting me for more than half of my life. Then she helped me open that block and experience a free flow of my energy, creativity, and joy. If you‘re open to having real Angels in your life, Sea Glassman is open to helping you live your highest dreams.

SYD RUSHING, Writer’s Boot Camp Graduation Speech
“……..Soul Writing. With my ten page animation sampler she reiterated, “You need a rewrite. ” I said “sure, I’ll do a component rewrite, a craft rewrite and a — –” She whispered hard into my stubbornness, “You need to do a spiritual rewrite.” “Whew!” All I could think of was, “this chic is deep!” “Okay. I’ll do a spiritual rewrite.” WHAT’S a spiritual rewrite? Like a spiritual boomerang those words zapped me into the bottom rack of my spinal chord, harpooned into my heart and came out somewhere on the other end of epiphany for the soul. She said, “What does your soul need to say? Because your soul needs to be on every page of this script. Go through and put your soul on every page.”
Something happened on a profound and revolutionary level. I stopped listening and adhering to the rhythm of an unseen, shameless soulful truth. I closed my ears to the parade of thumping voices. Robert McKee, Linda Seger, Syd Field, the new guru flavor of the month, GET OUT OF MY HEAD!! Then I began reading the Greenlight Scripts for WBC, helping my fellow WBC writers 150 per cent with their projects and listening to the ebb and soul of my own unique writer‘s voice. A turning point began.
From helping others unselfishly, the learning curve was deepened. I could now write a half decent premise line and spot a conceitful project a thousand kilometers away. Life was good. Ultimately, it has to be called Soul Writing because we give endless years of dedication not knowing where it will all end up.
Soul Writing. But with soul writing we have to give back to each other as writers. What you give you get back. Pay it forward. What you don‘t give back rots and could set back another writer‘s diving board to greatness happening sooner. We are spirit. Write with your spirit. But here‘s the fresh conceit in listening to your soul. Just because someone hasn‘t green lighted your film doesn‘t mean it can‘t be made by you. As writers we are ordained to a pact listening to our souls and taking our power back from the bottom of the food chain to the top where it belongs. Working three jobs and going to Writer’s Boot Camp, I had one cent to my name but I made it. Today, I have three cents to my name and an insatiable drive to write with my soul. No agent yet. No option yet. But I co-wrote a film that recently debuted at the DGA. I wrote three screenplays in three weeks. And I produced several of my own works on the stage. I didn‘t wait. I listened and acted on my soul‘s passion. If anything, that‘s the one gift I hope all writers from WBC will take with them and forward in the careers that choose them. Thank you, Sea Glassman, for being my angel. “
