Our face-to-face workshops for 2020 have been cancelled. Stay tuned for virtual offerings of these workshops coming soon.

The practice of mindfulness, with its emphasis on cultivating a non-judgmental and present moment orientation towards experience, has been scientifically linked to improved life-satisfaction, enhanced cognitive performance, and better interpersonal relationships. Through these workshop intensives, we will explore how mindfulness can benefit you in personal, interpersonal, artistic, and professional settings. We will learn about mindfulness through readings, discussions, and through engaging in selected group and individual practices. 

These workshops are geared toward music educators and performers in K-12, private studio, and collegiate settings. Participants will gain a practical understanding of the scientific and philosophical foundations of mindfulness and develop strategies for applying these foundations in their personal and professional lives.
