There’s a lot more going on in acting than you might think. Just ask French actor and Plum Village mindfulness practitioner Binh Doan. Though he’s rather new to the world of acting, he has absorbed the essence of acting and distilled what he has learned in a highly spiritual way. To Doan, acting is much more than a job and even more than a calling. It is a way of learning about life. In this Q&A, I asked Doan to illuminate me on the spiritual essence of acting and how to use acting to get to know ourselves better.
Does acting give you a different perspective on life ?
Does choosing to take on a role as an actor help you see the different personas that we use throughout the day?
