I see nothing to fear in inner space ...

Sabrina Schepmann

 

Since my early years I was dedicated to the freedom of Arts, the Magic of Nature & the Wisdom of the Buddhist Traditions. I was a rebellious little girl, always to be found in crowns of trees, building stone caves in the garden, or driving my red trycicle in the middle of a main road at rush hour. I never came home without scratches, blue stains or with a feeling of guilt, even when I was 2 hours too late. I was passionatly angry and fearless and I wanted to find my own answers to life.

 

My path lead me first into the Spotlight of public attention and I saw that to have money and a standing, doesnt necessarily mean that you are save from suffering. There is suffering everywhere, and like Monica Bellucci beautifully said:

"The only difference is, that the rich suffer in more comfort." She is right.

And since I felt my suffering increasing I was a good citizen and chose a path far away from it. Confronted with a great storm of resistance by whitdrawing myself deliberatly from the world, I gave myself time to study different artistic fields and to relate myself more to nature, energy and sound.

But it took years of trying to understand, that it is not possible to escape suffering by running away from it or by trying to change the world and thereby following self destructive behaviors, addictions and self-centered views. And even my idea of what compassion really is and how it is to be executed, changed dramatically over the years


Since then all of my archetypical in depth studies, dramatic choices and researches in complementary professions are fundamentally based on the universal knowing that there is a warm and accommodating space in the heart of all differences. And that we are able to realize something that is far more delicate than what we think we are and be able to do and experience.

By studying the 5 Vidyas of Craftmanship, the 32 points of Healing, Visual Sound, Buddhist logic and further in depth studies in Yoga, Dzogchen Meditation and organic Body Movement, I came to a deeper understanding of how traumatic Injuries and Health issues correlate and how to dissolve fears about death & change into the warm compassion of open awareness.

In January 2016 SIAYOGA Berlin opened its doors as an International Yoga & Meditation school based on the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism & The Method & Wisdom of Artistry.

Designed for Artists & Creatives in TV & Film Business.

One of the powerful tools for Actors & performing Artists appears in working with The Lotus Born Diary.

A Cinematic Life Design Program to enter & create the life of a character, or in buddhist terms: The Mandala of a Deity.

"Since we have a lot of examples where truly magificent actors end up broken, psychologically traumatized or even dead, I wanted to create a tangible tool that provides a concrete doorway and path for the actor to enter the world of character. - Like Alice entered Wonderland.

The actor is invited to learn how to be daringly adventurous, how to provide space for the characters qualities and how to approach painful experiences  in a joyful and compassionated way."

The Lotus Born Diary is a powerful & unique way for an actor to study his instrument and to enter his deepest potential as an artist.
