Great theater is made by being present in the moment. That, at its core, is what mindfulness is. In this program, Central Florida Community Arts (CFCArts) Teaching Artist Garin Jones blends drama and meditation exercises that will encourage you to engage with theater in meaningful ways. Watch as Jones discusses and performs scripts, then hear a guided meditation related to the material.

By watching this program, you can expect to:

  • learn and practice a basic meditation.
  • analyze theatrical excerpts for deeper meaning.
  • practice theatrical exercises and basic performance techniques.

This program is presented by Garin Jones and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation in collaboration with CFCArts.

About the Program Presenter

Garin Jones has performed various roles at Disney over the last 10 years and meditated his entire adult life. Both skills have been instrumental in his growth as a partner, father and person. There’s no wrong way to meditate, unless you aren’t having fun. That’s why he loves this blend of theater and mindfulness. It’s an opportunity to explore how everything can be meditation and how that fact can enrich your experience.
