You Should Blog Every Day

You know when you want to learn something, you should tell others that you want to do it. It’s kind of like an affirmation.

So, here I sit on this rainy-sunny-rainy-sunny Saturday in Los Angeles, reading a little admonition that I thought I’d share with YOU today, but it’s really ME telling ME to do it… and why.

It’s a week-long educational marathon… teachers from everywhere, classes/workshops on every topic you’d ever want that concerns music & the business. Great fun, and a great opportunity to mingle too!

The Benefits of Meditation Practice for Creatives

It’s important to note that there’s a lot more to meditation practice than simply “boosting your creativity.” If I were to promote meditation as some kind of creative thinking technique, the monks would be rightly appalled — or amused. So the benefits I’m going to describe, while very real, are really side effects of meditation — if you approach meditation looking to “get” any of these things, you’ll probably be disappointed. On the other hand, if you just practice it for its own sake, you may be pleasantly surprised…
