Let’s be clear:
If you have attended several workshops you already know that many teachers strive not to hurt the sensitivity of their students, raising their spirits with good words.
– All right, you’re on the right track! Try to correct this or that… Good job!
Does this ring a bell?
And yes, of course, you appreciate the words of encouragement, but you do not want to be treated like a child either. You are there to learn, to fight hard, to criticize yourself hard. You want to transform your vision, really improve from within.
You need, for once, someone to tell you loud and clear what you are doing wrong and what you should do to improve. You’ve known it for a long time, but it scares you. You need someone who knows what he’s talking about and has a helping intention, it’s not about being kind. You need someone to give you an honest hand, as a real friend does.
Without bulllol. Honesty first.
I’m not talking about rectifying the size of a head or darkening the whites of the eyes. Nothing like that. I talk about rectifying your attitude, your beliefs, your goals, your habits, your ego. I talk about thinking deeply about what you really do, on where you want to go. I talk about thinking deeply and taking drastic measures.
All great change entails a great crisis, and you must assume the challenge of leaving your comfort zone if you really want to improve.
It will not be easy. You will need a lot of coffee and all the support from the group. You will end the day satisfied, exhausted, with that feeling of weightlessness like when something new and powerful invades you… Do you know what I’m talking about?
If what I’m saying connects with you, READ ON:
Jeremy Mann is selecting a group of artists who are willing to give the 100% of themselves 12 hours a day, for five days. Artists willing to undress, to change, to transform. Willing to become adult artists.
So, do you have what it takes join Jeremy Mann and Nadezda Bootcamp?
