Professional stuntman James Armstrong describes to host Laura Ling what it’s like to deal with the pressure and responsibility of performing dangerous stunts as well as how he prepares for being set on fire in a short video by Seeker Stories about rituals.
To help combat the incredible stress of his career, James began performing a ritual before every stunt. He meditates and breathes deeply. It seems simple, but it makes all the difference in the world. As he’s preparing for a stunt and his heart starts racing, he stops for a moment, takes a few deep breaths, and calms himself.
