Patti’s Story

Patti received her MA in Psychology with an emphasis in Drama Therapy from the California Institute of Integral Studies. A member of the National Speaker’s Association, she is a TEDx featured speaker, multiple business award winner and past Broadway performer. This is her story:

A series of events in my life convinced me of the power of imagination and inner visualization. Many years ago, I went to New York City to take acting classes. Like many artists, I would sometimes do street theatre to make a little spare change. One day, I was sharing my spoils with a friend when he asked me if I would ever perform on Broadway, “Me?” I replied with a laugh, “I’m a performance artist. I would only perform Off-Broadway.”

Later, his question haunted me and I began to wonder what it would feel like to perform on Broadway. I let myself fantasize about walking through the stage door into the dressing room that had my name on the door. I imagined myself getting ready and waiting behind the thick velvet curtain for the house lights to dim.

I told myself to snap out of it, but the lingering sensations of my Broadway fantasy stuck with me when I returned home to Seattle where my career as a performance artist had sunk to an all-time low. Through a sequence of amazing events, within the year that dream came to be my new reality –  a successful performer doing what I loved. Since that day I have been working with the power of inner and outer visuals to help individuals, teams and organizations around the world focus to achieve their dreams.
