"Music and creativity have always been passions of mine, but for a Iong time, although I trained and performed in some fabulous places with some wonderful people, the truth is I was struggling on the inside, like so many do. As a violinist I suffered from acute shoulder pain, but worse than that I thought that the pain meant something about me. I spent a great deal of my time second guessing myself, overthinking, procrastinating and feeling anxious or depressed rather than flourishing. The music career I once loved had become a burden and a struggle and I knew I was capable of more. As a saxophonist, I continued performing and teaching, but it wasn't until I stumbled across a simple but hidden truth about the mind that my experience started to change----I felt free again, not only psychologically and physically, but musically too. I definitely discovered something that had a profound impact on me, and as I continue to share this understanding, the more I see its transformative power for others too."
