Qigong, Musicianship, and the Mastery of Creativity

Course Number

The ancient Chinese recognized that there is energy throughout the universe, called qi, and formed a discipline to master this energy: qigong. Through a series of exercises and meditations, this class teaches students how to awaken this force within and employ its power and wisdom to activate their inner creator. This course shows students how to play their instruments in various states of consciousness and clarity brought about using qigong. As well, this course helps students optimize relationships with bandmates and members of the audience through the practice of this discipline. Qigong can harmonize the emotions in order to tap the creative essence of the muse. It can also clarify one’s goals, both short and long term. Qigong promotes health and gives a sense of balance within a seemingly chaotic world.
