    Course – Joyful Performance

    Välkommen till kursen 'Joyful Performance'!

    Course information:

    Do you have challenges with around performance, critique and stress?

    Do you experience that your feeling for the music sometimes is overshadowed by performance?

    Find a more relaxed, curious and loving relationship with yourself and your music through the course Joyful Performance. Based on the conditions of the musician we work with evidence-based tools from mindfulness and self-compassion to find a freer relationship to performance. Through six weeks of exploration with these tools you can start to develop a way of being with yourself, the audience and your music that is grounded in presence, self-compassion and your feeling for the music. It's not a question of removing troublesome thoughts or feelings, but shifting our perspective of ourselves.

    The course runs over eight weeks with weekly meetings in small groups with theory, meditations, experience-based exercises and dialogues. Between meetings you will get meditations and exercises to explore by yourself during the weeks.
