What are your musical aspirations for 2021? What if you could start the new year feeling connected to your purpose, clear about your next steps, and ready to take action with a specific game plan and the support of a your community?

In this three-hour workshop you will be guided through meditation, conversation and writing exercises to check in with your projects and goals and assess your next steps. The truth is, you have everything you need to move forward and create your musical vision! This workshop will provide the container and inspiration for you to get clear on that vision and on the actions you’ll want to take to realize those dreams.

The weeks around the winter solstice and the end of the year hold significance in many cultures. It is a powerful time to turn our attention inward, reflect on the past year, and set intentions for the new year. Following in this tradition, we will make use of this energy to tune into our desires and set deeply aligned goals from that place.
