Music and Imagery for Musicians

As musicians, our relationship with music is vital to our professional identity and the quality of our work. Over the course of the pandemic, we have had to dramatically shift how we engage and share music with others, often in ways that felt very disconnected and fragmented. This workshop will introduce participants to ways to restore your relationship with music through multisensory imagery, and to meet three specific needs for your self-care: Relaxation, Diversion, and Exploration. 
This workshop will be held in Wilson Hall, Rowan University.
This workshop (3 clock hours) will address the following CBMT Domains:
III.A.4.e Utilizing health and wellness approaches to inform clinical practice.
