Acting With Mindfulness was founded in 2012 by Dawn Marie Brekke as Art and Energy. As co-facilitators, Dawn and Alexa offer groups and workshops for personal growth. We are a team of creative professionals who use theatre techniques and embodied methods to help adults explore and cultivate satisfaction and balance in careers, relationships, and daily life.
The Mother Theatre Project was founded in 2011 by Dawn Marie Brekke, Alexandra Sallese Devin, Cindy Reynolds Eisemann, and Dawn Elane Reed at First Unitarian Universalist Congregational Society of Brooklyn Heights to explore sacred theatre. We produced "Mother Wove the Morning" by Carol Lyn Pearson four times in 2011 and 2013, and worked on a monologue project exploring our own experiences with the feminine divine and the balance of masculine/feminine energies 2012-13. In 2014 we used a combination of theatre improvisation, drama therapy, and mindfulness practices to create an original theatre piece exploring the Mind-Heart connection and disconnect in today's society.
