Zero Zone Praxis

Zero Zone is Void. A gap in our mind between continuous decision and selection flow. We will learn to capture and design this fragmented mind gap perceptually, according to our wishes and aim. At that very moment, we are nowhere. We are free to choose the path to avoid confrontations or selfish behaviour. However, typically our ego and fear of the unknown hold us back. This is the moment where Zero Zone Praxis appears to support us.
Zero Zone praxis is a self-cultivation praxis that helps to create an absolute performing flow, tackle ego-based conflicts and avoid fear manifestations in cooperation.
By practising ZZ praxis, one achieves a profound uninterrupted focusing and moves to a higher level of consciousness in their activity. This creates a robust mutual contact, and both receive an unforgettable experience from the profound communion with their collaboration partner (see also Flow and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi)
. Alongside the training, a coach-coachee dyad employs here a cultivating directing mode. In repeating analysing cycles, the coach supports the coachee to achieve extra intense reflective concentration and helps them to create a personal conviction about their goals. Accordingly, that makes one’s performance effectively sincere, engaging and profound.

Zero Zone Praxis for Executive

Zero Zone praxis as Executive Coaching for business leadership entails a conversion of a leader from a false self (trapped in fear, greed, resentment, and a distortion of reality) to an authentic self (steeped in forgiveness, acceptance, gratitude, compassion, and integrity). Via such training, the leader specifies their purpose, becomes selfless and orientated to serving others and can see a united goal from a greater moral perspective. ZZ helps tackle ego-based conflicts in the cooperation between partners, enhance analytical reflection and self-balancing skills, and alleviate a desire for achievement and performance anxiety. It leads practitioners to focus on doing instead of constantly evaluating their performance – am I compelling enough? By fusing perceptual techniques and knowledge of performing flow dynamics, praxis helps to eliminate primary affections of the human mind.

Zero Zone Praxis for Individual

Zero Zone self-cultivation praxis helps tackle ego-based internal evaluations and conflicts, alleviates destructive desires, anxiety, misleading propelling thoughts and confusions, teaches better focusing and flexible focus, helps create personal conviction in personal goals, and regulates emotional balance. ZZ improves self-confidence, precision in doing, ability to enter detail, sensitivity, perceptual sharpness and self-reflection.
These enhanced characteristics design one to be a valuable ensemble member and collaborator, a sensitive partner and a balanced individual. The praxis elevates one’s creativity and inspiration, fulfils life with joy and harmony and promotes all positive qualities one already has while decreasing negative habits and thinking patterns. ZZ trains to detect whether there is a genuine reason for anxiety regarding unknown challenges.

Zero Zone for Actor-Director Dyad

Zero Zone praxis is a mutual practice for actor-director dyad to train over a rehearsal period. ZZ can also be practised individually as a performer training technique, which allows one to enter a higher state of consciousness and create an unstoppable performing flow. Simultaneously, ZZ praxis enhances the director’s craft by encompassing a coaching approach and introducing a new way of cultivating directing.
Praxis helps tackle ego-based conflicts during the rehearsal period in Performing Arts and avoid stage fright manifestations in the actor-director dyad. An idiosyncratic Zero Zone praxis fuses Stanislavskian actor training and directing craft with the perceptual exercises from yogic techniques and philosophical principles, facilitated according to coaching principles. ZZ is the future of authentic Performing Arts, providing a profound participatory experience.

Extraordinary absorption... profound, deep focusing on the task and uninterrupted communication flow

Neil, 41, Deputy Head

I realize sometimes that I am too oriented toward results. I like to achieve, being in the centre of attention. However, it is stressful and I also realize how selfish this attitude could be. It also takes a lot of energy. Zero Zone praxis helps to stay focused on doing and the shift is remarkable!

Rebecca, 37, Sales Manager

The Jump is really effective […] … even with a partner with whom you have been a colleague for a long time. You will discover the eyes and go in a somewhere intense connection.

Alice, 36, Multilingual Actress

This was challenging for me for first – how will the ensemble follow the idea of additional training. Fortunately, they took the extra training as something refreshing, with joy!

Tim, 52, Experienced Director for Stage, TV and Radio

I immediately felt a decisive confrontation as the director started from the wrong end. I used the Shift instead of starting to argue with her to defend my reaction. This saved the situation and brought personal relief!

Laura, 29, Renown film and stage actress

When I feel I will force the solution, I step back now. This provides more space for the ideas coming from the team and encourages us to contribute equally, preventing mistakes. Zero Zone praxis actually decreases my responsibility and increases the department's commitment.

Dave, 47, Executive Manager

Actors usually love games. This made it easy to start with the process, I actually found myself supported by them and this, in turn, reignited myself.

Erin, 69, Director with an outstanding career

The absorption is so strong. I practice it every evening, from the need

Ann, 28, AD

… this helps to get familiar and already into more dedicated connection with new further partners and avoid also stage fright!
