On Golden Pond
Last evening I attended the preview of On Golden Pond at The Barn Theater in Willmar, MN.
It was very good. A definite 👍 👍up!
In hypnosis there is a technique called “Theater of the mind” or “director technique” in which the client is invited to use theatre imagery to work out solutions as they direct the scenes and make changes until the scene is just right. When the desired scene is achieved, the client steps into the scene and becomes part of it.
On Golden Pond did just that!
The play and characters are all a part of us in some way, old and young, with all our baggage and imperfections, concerns about life and death.
During the play, I found myself forgetting I was in a theater. It was like watching scenes from life play out as I recalled feeling that way or saying those words.
Then at other times, I was aware that I was watching actors and actresses on a stage, just watching a performance.
The play carries a unique message of healing. And in many ways, I think it also does deep healing inside of you as you watch.
Reverse therapy in a way!
Sometimes you don’t need a hypnotherapist to help you, all you need is a good play with good acting to do the work for you. Your only job is to attend the show!
