In this lesson, we begin to nurture a deeper relationship with your truth and the source of inspiration and creativity. Through two simple practices, you will deepen your understanding and connection with your unique viewpoint.
First, do the listening meditation (presented in the video and attached below on this page), noticing the sounds you hear and notice how you respond to them.
Then, take a few minutes at the piano to play simply and observe your reactions and thoughts.
This begins to invite you into the space of sound-making with mindfulness. It’s a way of “practicing presence at the piano.”
Embracing your perspective is essential in improvisation.
By connecting with the truth of your experience, you can infuse your music with authenticity and inspiration.
How might you tap into deeper levels of flow, wisdom, and support in your life going forward?
How might that help you unlock new possibilities for personal growth and fulfillment?
As you engage in these practices, pay attention to your discoveries, insights, aha’s, and learnings (DIALs). They can be invaluable in your musical journey. By committing to this practice, you open yourself to accepting guidance on, and taking tangible steps toward, your own dreams and desires.
By connecting with your own life energy in a flowing and musical way, the things you want in your life and the things you want to share can come more easily.
Take this opportunity to explore your perspective, tap into deeper levels of creativity, and embark on a transformative musical journey. I look forward to hearing about your experiences and the beautiful music that emerges from your unique perspective. See you in the next lesson!
