• Assess your progress with your relaxation efforts• Assess your progress with your ability to concentrate• Recreate the sensory experience of experiencing sharp pain.
  You will need some privacy to complete this assignment. First begin by relaxing your body and quieting yourmind through the relaxation techniques we have learned in class. Take as much time as you need. Recall aexperience you have had with a sharp pain—perhaps caused by a cramp, a Charlie Horse, a toothache, a cut,or a particularly sharp headache. The source of the sharp pain: _______________________________ 
Recollection Record
For this exercise, you (obviously) will not be asked to practice with the real sensation first. This exercise willbe enacted purely based on your memory, and therefore requires some very careful, concentrated recall work. Your responses to the prompts below MUST be almost ridiculously specific. Use metaphors and similes toaccurately conjure up the sensation. Be specific about how the sensation physically affects you.1) Which part(s) of your body were affected? ______________________________________________________________________________  ______________________________________________________________________________ 2) Explain the sensation as specifically as possible, including the “journey” of the sensation (How did itstart? What did it feel like at first? How did it change?) ______________________________________________________________________________  ______________________________________________________________________________  ______________________________________________________________________________  ______________________________________________________________________________  ______________________________________________________________________________  ______________________________________________________________________________  ______________________________________________________________________________  ______________________________________________________________________________  The StanislavskiMethod
 The Exercise
Now, clear your mind. Spend at least 10 minutes relaxing in a chair—as you have been taught. Recreate theexperience of the sharp pain. You are not doing this exercise in order to learn to pantomime. Work onreliving each of the specific sensations you recorded above. Do not move on to the next step until you fully recreate each sensation fully and vividly and specifically. Work on this several times for roughly ten-minute intervals. You will be completing this exercise in class, and will be expected to have worked on this significantly athome. You will be guided through each step, and you will be asked to recreate and describe each sensation.Due Date: ________________________________
