“I have difficulty making emotional connections to copy and working through those physical
breathing exercises. Last night just seemed to help me connect the dots!! I had two auditions in
my inbox last night after the webinar. I did them both this morning and I felt like I approached
them with SO MUCH more confidence and connection than what I've been doing.  I actually had FUN doing my auditions today..... (that never happens)
