On the Journey from Addiction to Recovery
The Essential Journey Series

“Wonderful!” is not a full enough word to convey the complexity
of meaning, layer upon layer of revelation or strength of expression.
yet, I have to say, it was wonderful! This is a journey through Step One
like no other and can tap the very core of the newcomer, the old-timer
and the “in-betweenr.”

“Thank you for sharing in a way few can, from the song of your heart to
the tune of ours.”
Shelley Marshall, author of Day By Day and the Pocket Sponsor

“A journey from powerlessness to liberation through searing imagery
and evocative music.”

In an addictive society we all are touched by the toxic effects of addiction.
This work is for people who are committed to guiding themselves or others
into recovery and healing.

“Join me on this emotional, intellectual, and spiritual experience
from breakdown to breakthrough…in a mere fifteen minutes.”

Errol and Rochelle StriderErrol and Rochelle Alicia Strider have developed a new model for entertainment and spiritual education called Innertainment which combines philosophical inquiry, spiritual discovery and psychological growth with comedy and theater. They have devoted the last 28 years to this ministry traveling extensively all across the United States doing performances and conducting workshops and classes.

Errol Strider began his professional theater career over 35 years ago as a director, choreographer, playwright, actor, dancer, mime and humorist. He was the artistic director of three theater companies including: the Montalvo Festival Theater in Saratoga, CA; the Gaslight Playhouse in Miami, FL; and the Intersection Players in San Francisco, CA.

He has performed at the Coconut Grove Playhouse, Goodman Theater in Chicago, Café LaMama in New York and has appeared with such stars as Harv Presnell, Daryl Hickman, Rita Gardner and Lola Fisher.

Errol has written numerous plays including the critically acclaimed “Family Baggage” and the award winning “Adventures to Closetmush”. Errol has written several books including “Journeys to the Source”, “Welcome to Your Universe”, “Answers are Timid”, “Elfbert, Santa’s Reluctant Helper” – an illustrated family book, and “Welcome to Your Universe.” He was nominated for a National Cable Emmy Award and was the winner of the Jefferson University Oral Interpretation Contest.

He has taught acting, dance, creativity and spirituality at the University of Miami, Dominican University, Naropa West University in Oakland, and Mundelein College in Chicago. He is also a practicing Board Certified Hypnotherapist.

He was the creator and presenter of “How To Get Results With People” and “How to Stay Motivated” for CareerTrack Seminars.

Rochelle Alicia Strider has been acting and teaching for almost 40 years. She began her professional acting career in New York City in the early 60’s as part of the theatrical renaissance; starting with La Mama ETC of which she is a founding member and The Open Theater which introduced her to the improvisational skills she employs and teaches to this day. She went on to appear in over 20 productions off-Broadway. She appeared on Broadway as Simone Everade in “Marat Sade…” and also created roles on Public Television and the original NYPD.

In the mid-seventies she began a quest to incorporate her personal journey into her art, and in 1975, met Errol Strider to form a partnership in marriage and in what they now call, Innertainment and the parenting of two sons. She has taught acting classes for young and mature professionals in New York City, Boulder Colorado, Israel, Europe and San Francisco. She continues to teach acting skills to people who wish to grow spiritually. She is currently writing a text on “Acting With Love” -the A.W.L. process.

As she grows and deepens her understanding of what makes us tick she shares these insights with her audiences and students in the most Inner’taining way possible.

Some of their programs and productions have included:

  • Touring the United States for over 12 years with their original production of “Family Baggage” and accompanying workshop, “Unloading Your Baggage,” both of which deal with dysfunctional families, addiction and abuse.

What Errol and Rochelle Strider DoWe use comedy, theater, poetry, dance, mime and music to illuminate the human condition from the most mundane to the most sublime.

Strider Innertainment provides a three dimensional look (mind, body and spirit) at the underlying spiritual, philosophical and psychological motivations of human beings.

Our characters and stories allow people to see, feel as well as hear concepts and insights as they relate to personal and spiritual growth and social evolution.

In workshops and classes we focus the light on the “shadow” parts of our lives and facilitate healing and transformation in a safe setting filled with humor and love.

We offer classes, workshops, seminars and performances. We also publish a wide range of products and other resource materials, including audio and video tapes, books, matted poems and sayings all of which celebrate the panoply of the human experience.

We are also available for personal coaching and private transformational work.

We have programs for ages 7 and up.

We have many hours of scripted material available for other groups to perform.

We draw from our personal and interpersonal experience with each other from which we find an endless supply of drama and comedy to further our growth and our repertoire. We are dedicated to living what we teach and in those moments when we stumble, the humor is there to break our fall and our faith is what lifts us back into Awareness.
