The Ten Actors Methodology: A Tool for Life
The Ten Actors Methodology offers a holistic approach to handling pressure and stress by increasing our personal effectiveness and capacity to respond across the whole spectrum of living.
Acute, debilitating stress is a global epidemic, affecting the lives of billions of people. Up to a point, stress is a necessary part of performing, creating, and achieving. Beyond a certain threshold – this varies between individuals – elevated stress factors become a serious health hazard. Instead of helping humanity into greater well-being, much of modern technology is one of the major causes of the inexorable increase in a wide-range of stress-related maladies. A large percentage of the worlds population are stress-burnout candidates.
You are likely aware of this from a personal experience, with yourself, with those around you, and through observing what is happening in the world today. A stressed-out human can only bring to bear small segments of their natural potential, thereby driven to deliver more with less; leading to mental fatigue, energetic depletion, and wear and tear at many levels.
There are three main approaches to dealing with stress:
- Change in lifestyle (such as working less, change of environment, occupational change, change of habits)
- Stress management practices (meditation, exercise, diet, time out)
- Addressing its root causes (what this work is about)
Consider the nature of pressure and stress that may be present in your life. Some of this stress is so deeply engrained in the body, brain, and mind, to a point of being numb to its impact. This is one of the insidious aspects of stress – many of us are now think it to be a natural part of living, which it certainly isn’t. And then, one day, a stress burnout symptom strike right out of the blue. These have many expressions: Sleep disorders, digestive issues, cardio-vascular irregularities, high blood pressure, energetic depletion, mental fatigue, apathy, to mention a few. The more connected a person to him/her selves, the more one is able to feel and pin-point the cause of these maladies. (Many these days are more deeply connected to the little screens than to themselves)
So, which of the segments of the natural spectrum of the human potentiality activate and combine when confronted with a pressure and stress-causing situation? How do you react to pressure and stress? (Response is chosen, reaction is automatic) Do you feel somewhat trapped in a vicious cycle of habitual repetition?
Imagine for a moment a more present and effective you, able to respond in ways that draw into any given scenario more of the incredible range of natural capacities – known and dormant – present in the human system. Imagine you being able to dramatically expand the perception thresholds of what is happening in and round you. Imagine a more cognizant you, able to read the finer nuances within what is happening; a more human you, able to feel and sense to a greater extent the nature of struggle that is present in you and those around you. Imagine a vastly more effective you , a more resilient you, in many different contexts, making it possible for you to lead yourself and others in ways that create space for natural creative capacities waiting to be liberated.
This is what The Ten Actors Methodology is about, which is how to manage oneself in the face of increasing complexity and multiplicity; how to handle pressure and stress by developing one’s natural range and versatility. In so doing, addressing the root cause of excessive stress, which is not being able to use oneself properly. Because when we learn and train how to use ourselves properly, how to connect to and work with the incredible scope of our natural human formations, we become more effective and thereby, able to reduce stress factors to manageable levels, while engaging in the thrilling journey of self-development.
The Ten Actors Methodology reveals ten key practices that are deeply engrained in the natural design of the human, that when connected to and worked with, open up the breath-taking range that is coded into the human design, with a transformational impact on our developing capacity to handle the opportunities of living.
Delivered through hands-on, coaching-natured workshops, designed to seamlessly integrate into an organisation’s flow of learning and development – schools, universities, corporate environments, government ministries, crisis teams, team-building processes – or a high-impact stand-alone workshop / series of workshops.
