5-class series

Begins Monday, August 2, 2010, 3:00pm – 4:30pm, at The Cradle of Manifestation, 2483 Old Middlefield Way, Suite 150, Mountain View, CA

Start your week with an intention AND practice of living creatively.

If you are ready to take action in your life in a new direction, if you are facing a transition and need to gain a vision of greater possibilities, if you are simply wanting to feel more at peace with the changes happening in your world…this class is for you!

I have found that simply talking about and thinking about change is not enough to bring us the results we desire in our lives. We need to combine intentional thinking with mindful actions. How do we begin to do that?

This 5-class series will deliberately combine MIND and BODY work in the practice of music improvisation, with the intention to improve your experience of daily life.

You will…

  • Invigorate your body, calm your mind, and experience greater clarity as you begin to take action throughout the week.
  • Achieve greater awareness of your own thoughts and awaken to new possibilities through deep listening and meditative sound-making.
  • Learn and practice small daily rituals that will help you begin to live and act more creatively.

I will facilitate as we REFLECT on our intentions for the week and PRACTICE the core elements of free music improvisation:

  • listening
  • play
  • repetition
  • emptying the mind
  • letting go of attachment to outcomes
  • offering quality sounds
  • allowing silence

**Please bring a notebook or journal and a pen.

**Musical instruments are welcome but NOT REQUIRED. Some simple instruments will be provided for your use.

Enter into this practice and watch your life IMPROVE with IMPROV.
