Outcome:
You will emerge from this 1-day intensive with a basic understanding of the key principles you need to know in order to make real progress in freeing yourself from the pain, tension, and mental obstacles that block your artistry and keep you from fully enjoying success in all areas of your life.  You will come away with  effective practical tools to support your continued growth in this direction.

Problems it Solves:
Musicians suffering from mind-body blockages experience a wide range of inter-related problems, and the most potentially harmful one is neglecting to take any action to fix them, simply because you don’t know where to turn for highly-qualified, trustworthy, and effective help that addresses both the mental and physical aspects together.  This program solves this problem of not knowing where to begin, so you can finally get to the ROOT CAUSE of ALL of your issues and learn how you can start solving the specific problems you face ON YOUR OWN.

The Art of Freedom 1-Day/60-Day gives you simple, effective, practical tools to begin solving your own problems, such as:

  • physical pain and discomfort including back, neck, and shoulder pain
  • stress, fear, anxiety
  • excess tension
  • technical skills limitations and inconsistency in execution
  • performance anxiety and discomfort on stage
  • poor posture and coordination problems
  • boredom, burnout, and blocked inspiration
  • relationship difficulties (professional and personal)
  • fatigue, lack of focus, and low energy levels
  • general negativity and unhelpful thought patterns
  • career frustration and worry
  • lack of confidence, poor self-esteem
  • a sense of “stuckness” and living beneath your full potential

Potential costs to you of NOT solving this problem:

  • Increased physical pain, discomfort, and more frequent illnesses, threatening your ability to function at peak performance and to freely enjoy recreational activities
  • Increased psychological disturbances and negativity, which can threaten the health and stability of both personal and professional relationships
  • Increased financial and emotional costs of prolonged psychological therapy that does not get at the psychophysical roots of the issues
  • Increased medical costs and frustration as physical problems are not eliminated by regular physician care, and unnecessary new complaints continually to arise with age
  • Increasing physical problems and declining self-esteem due to worsening posture
  • Loss of income from missed work due to physical ailments
  • Loss of time spent on physical and mental therapies that do not adequately address the problems
  • Shortened career and lifespan* due to the negative effects of prolonged stress
  • Long-range suffering from lack of fulfillment as mind, body, and soul remain disconnected
  • Increased suffering from the inability to reach your full potential for creating and enjoying inspired artistic excellence, true to your heart’s vocation
