Hi First name / Friend,
The new year is a time of fresh starts and new beginnings. It's also a time of change. Change is an essential part of life, and holding on to the status quo is not only unhealthy it's a sure way to get and be “stuck”.  
We shift and change - we're in a constant state of emotional and physical flux. Our goals change, our environment shifts, who we surround ourselves with alters. Even our world, and the music world, is rapidly changing!  So embrace change as natural.   When you do, and live life in the flow of, it can be tremendously freeing!
Ask yourself: Are there places I'm willing to make changes? What can I do to cultivate a greater sense of ease, spaciousness and balance? As musicians we can be headstrong; can we balance toward our hearts? As musicians we can be dreamers; can we balance toward letting go of perfection and become do-ers? 
What change are you ready to embrace in 2023? Perhaps it's easing the struggle, changing our inner narrative, or finally saying yes to learning new skills. 
Whatever your reason, go to your intuition. There you'll find the spark and inner fire that fuels your day-to-day! 

Need a little guidance? 
Tomorrow, December 31 at 10am, we'll breathe, have a guided “Getting in the Gap” meditation session, connect with our intention and enjoy a beautiful ritual to turn the page into the new year! 
It's free - anyone is welcome to join. Sign up here!
