Lab Notes Episode 7 – Soften

Our guest: Lori Triolo • Actor, Teacher, Principal at the Art of Awareness

In this episode, we study the relationship between business and breathing: our subject is somatic. Our conversation is a deep dive into just how unconscious our relationship to ourselves can be and how that can have debilitating effects on every aspect of our lives – including and especially our work. Our guide is Lori Triolo – a master teacher of Meisner and Fitzmaurice voice, breath and body techniques. Join her and our host Russ Hamilton as they explore the economy of effort.

Conversations revolve around how they are practicing and what they are discovering based on the Connection Lab Six Box Model.

About Lab Notes – the Connection Lab Podcast – is an ongoing conversation with people who have been though a Connection Lab workshop, an executive development program or through a Leadership Journey program. For everyone who has ever been to a workshop of this sort and had a useful experience – but are still working on turning that experience into a conscious practice – this is a show designed to support your effort and remind us all that we are not alone.
