The Podcast: Mindfulness and Musical Creatvity
It was exciting to be invited onto the “Musicality Now” podcast to speak about mindfulness and musical creativity. Christopher, my host, was particularly interested in my personal experiences – how mindfulness practice has affected my life as a musician. In our conversation we explored the practical, scientific and spiritual angles of the topic, and I guided the audience through a mini mindful moment.
“Musicality Now” write in their introduction: “Whether you’ve never heard of mindfulness, you’ve heard of it and thought it’s not for you, you’ve been curious but never tried it, or you’re already practicing mindfulness and enjoying the benefits in your musical life, we hope you’ll enjoy this conversation and get a ton out of it.”
