Songwriting workshops for groups of all ages. Here’s my dirty little secret: I can’t teach anyone how to write a song. What I can do is help others to open up to the place in themselves in which songs are born. Whether facilitated at a school or for corporate executives, these workshops focus on the real practice of songwriting–a return to the process of mindfully slowing down, listening deeply to one’s own heart, and expressing whatever truth arises from that center of power and presence. It is songwriting as a tool for becoming more fully alive. We are all creators–no further expertise or experience required. Some of us have simply forgotten. In these workshops, participants:
- Learn to express themselves authentically through songwriting
- Explore the nature of creativity and engage in mindfulness and self-inquiry practices
- Write and workshop a new original song (individually or as a group)
- Learn to cultivate creative joy
