EMBODIED MINDFULNESS: Performance Training for Deaf and Hearing Actors

Project description

Taking time for mindfulness training

Taking time to pause and breathe is a mindful moment. Mindfulness is something all humans naturally possess, but regular practice is needed. Mindfulness training entails the development of particular modes of attention, intention, body awareness and presence – all of which are also foundational skills for performers. The EU-funded EMBMIND project will develop and test the efficacy of a mindfulness training programme for deaf and hearing performers through an exploration of mindfulness practices that focus on the body. By analysing the links between proprioception, interoception, awareness and mindfulness, and by examining the deaf experience of embodiment, the research team will contribute new knowledge on the role of the body in mindfulness practice.
