Improv for Wellness

We don’t usually think of Hollywood as a place where one can come closer to Christ. But some people really do just that.Today’s guest, Nanciann Horvath, has spent her life combining nursing with acting. Now she uses these skills to help others live in the present.Throughout this interview of Nanciann by Fr. Mike, they talk about ways that acting can be used to illustrate bible stories. Nanciann even talks about Faith in FIlm – using Cinema Diviina – to examine ordinary movies to see what God can be saying to us through this media. It does happen. Movies can be modern day parables.Then Nanciann talks about using improvisation to help relieve everyday stress and other illnesses. She tells the participants to be in the NOW, don’t negate!

What she says has great possibilities for enhancing teaching bible study or catechesis.
