Working in the performing arts requires huge amounts of physical and emotional energy. Meditation can help to harness that energy for the moments we need it most. Whether you’re performing, recharging, getting out of character, or just relaxing, we hope you find these meditations helpful.

Meditations designed and delivered by Deone Zanotto, performing artist and owner and founder of Performance Based Meditation.

These episodes have been designed to help artists manage their energy surrounding a performance.

Harness energy, confidence and mindset for performance! The perfect addition to your pre-show warm up, or even before auditions, presentations, awards nights – any time you need performance energy.

Deeply immersive and engaging, Power Up! combines bold artistic elements with movement, music and voice to shift the viewer’s energy from isolation and separation towards expansion, fun, and renewed creative connection.

You’ve expended so much energy during a performance – this isn’t about losing that energy, but about allowing the mind and body to rest and be calm, so you are able to call on that wonderful energy whenever you need it.

A quick meditation to help you get out of ‘show’ mode and back into ‘life’ mode.

This meditation involves stepping through a ‘doorway’ – either actual or imagined. Great for getting out of character (however that applies to you), and moving forward as your wonderful self.

This meditation helps you to get out of a character, show or scene and get back into your own body. It involves running your hands over your body and flicking away energy with gratitude.
