Thandie Newton, on losing the Self in Art

On the theme of ‘Dance of Emptiness’ here is a nice talk on TED by Hollywood actress Thandie Newton. She talks about losing the sense of self when dancing or acting. This emptiness is what Art is all about. You need it in Martial Arts, you need it in dance, in top levels of sport, in yoga, in meditation …..

“if you get under that ‘Heavy’ self, like the torch of awareness, and find our essence, connection to the infinite … lets not be freaked out by our bountiful nothingness”
