The road performers travel along, is not always a smooth one. With growing clarity on how the pressures of uncertainty, nerves and anxiety affect individuals, the industry has collectively responded with increased awareness and support. Deone has performed all over the world, and while working on Broadway, Deone was not sleeping well and highly stressed, and knew she needed something in her life to get through the daily grind. She found meditation, and suddenly life looked completely different. 


Deone teaches many practical techniques to reduce stress, find balance and develop routines that allow you to remain healthy in a precarious industry. She has worked extensively with the Arts Wellness Collective in Melbourne to help extend Wellness in the Arts community.


This practical session focuses on how to use meditation to create space and energy in your everyday life. 

Deone will share how meditation works, the importance of breath and how we use it, as well as several practical exercises including Mindfulness, Guided meditation and Present Moment Awareness Techniques and exercises.

TIME: 10am - 1pm
