Clearing Challenging Blocks To Ones Creative Artistic Process with Ross Andaloro

Many actors find difficulty in being able to access roles that are affected by anxieties and blocks from their past
personal life.

This transformational work is about clearing difficulties and regrets of the past that are subconsciously impeding
their clarity and flexibility with challenging acting roles.

I have been supporting the arts community in Vancouver and Toronto towards excellence in their craft for 40 years.
This insight and awareness work combines a wide range of consciousness techniques developed by the human
potential communities in Britain, Canada, India, Tibet and the United States.

My rate for a one on one meeting is $150.00 for a 1 hour and 15 minute session.
I am happy to give a 20% discount to ACTRA members for my services.
I offer this service in person in both Vancouver and Toronto and by Telephone, FaceTime and Skype.
