I trained in that for four years, actually. I kind of took a bit of a hiatus from my career [in acting]. I mean, I worked a little bit, but I kind of put it on the back burner for a while. So basically, I facilitate workshops and groups – it’s a very intensive form of group therapy – and I love it. It’s interesting, it’s fun, it’s creative, it’s alive, it’s beautiful. So, I mean, I’d probably just be doing more of that. It’s a lot of fun to lead groups of people. To facilitate them in some way. Try to create things together. Or be a producer or director, which I still have plans to do."
