Editorial Reviews


Jeannie Lindheim's carefully structured book represents the clarity and generosity of her teaching and mastery in leadership and transformative education. I read it with curiosity and marked many pages because after 30 years of teaching movement I am still hungry for new forms and exercises. I believe that this book is a gift to anyone who is lucky enough to read it.
--Susan Dibble, Chair, Theater Arts Department, Brandeis University

I have just finished Trusting the Moment and find it as compelling as Jeannie herself. It gives excellent guidance and support to group leaders and I think leaders of many kinds of groups will want to use this book. Her whole section on the Art of Group Leadership is superb. The exercises are exciting and original. As the author of eight books, I was impressed by the clarity and sincerity of the writing in Trusting the Moment. The book flows along well. As a long-term professor, sociologist, group leader and writer, I endorse and applaud Jeannie's book.
--Ruth Harriet Jacobs, PhD, author and former Chair of Sociology Department, Clark University

This well organized book can help you facilitate groups with a wide variety of stimulating new ideas and exercises to awaken self-awareness and creativity. Jeannie Lindheim comes from a theater background with experience in offering challenging and meaningful improvisations. She has also written about the art of group leadership, which is the most important part of facilitating any group. Using movement, art, journal writing and improvisation integrates all of the senses as this book suggests.
--Natalie Rogers, PhD, psychologist and author of The Creative Connection: Expressive Art as Healing

This is a go-to guide for exercises that facilitate relationships through meaningful and what we are now forced to call 'live' or 'real-time' human interaction. Jeannie's activities constitute an ethics of group bonding by harmonizing the heart of the individual with the soul of the community.
--Daniel Spector, Director, Drama Instructor, Tisch School of the Arts at NYU

Trusting the Moment manages to be both a very practical and an inspiring guide to teaching improvisation and acting. Beyond the clearly described ideas and techniques, Jeannie Lindheim beautifully reminds readers how to infuse the magic ingredient into their teaching and group facilitation: love. Through many vivid examples drawn from her years of teaching, Lindheim explains how to have faith -- and bring out the best -- in workshop participants.
--Renee Emunah, PhD, RDT-BCT Author, Acting for Real: Drama Therapy Process, Technique, and Performance; Director, Drama Therapy Program, California Institute of Integral Studies

I found Jeannie's book delightful, practical and very well composed. It will be a very valuable resource for group leaders. Her spirit of joy and enthusiasm is on every page. Bravo! I can't say which are my favorite exercises; they all were great and very easy to read in the format she chose. I'm impressed and appreciative.
--Thomas Yeomans, PhD, Founder/Director, the Concord Institute

Jeannie's book is really wonderful, and a very important book for the audiences she mentions. For a theater person, reading through these exercises is pure joy! The exercises themselves are crystal-clear in all respects: purpose, procedure, notes, feedback are all extremely well explained. That means the exercises will be of great value to non-theater people who need some guidance in understanding what each exercise is trying to achieve. --Gary Genard, Founder and President Public Speaking International
