Deborah Henson-Conant & Hip Harp Academy Present:

An “In-Between the Music” Conversation
“Jung at Harp & the Strings of Passion”

With Kathleen Wiley

A YouTube series about music & the Strings of Passion
and how they relate to the principles of Jungian Analysis

“In Between the Music” is a series of conversations about music and how it connects, inspires and informs everything else in life … and how that connection goes both ways.

In this mini-series “Jung at Harp” I’m speaking with Kathleen Wiley, a Jungian analyst – and a harpist who has come to the instrument as an adult – part of a growing number of experts in other fields who come to Hip Harp Academy to develop their skills and self-expression on the harp, bringing a lifetime of expertise, artistry and experience in other realms.

Each conversation in this series explores the connection between Jungian analysis and my “Strings of Passion” theory of Creative Resonance: Impulse, Structure, Character, Roles, Practice(s), Deconstruction and Lift-off. These 7 principles are at the heart of a book I am writing, my 10-Week “Strings of Passion” creativity program  and my “Strings of Passion” Salon Concert .

Episode #1: IMPULSE

Impulse is the desire to do, be, have, touch. It’s the first step to creative expression. But what is it, really? And how do you sustain your creative impulse when it may take hours, days, weeks or even years to transform a creative impulse to something you can actually share with the world?

Episode #4:  ROLES

Roles give you the power to work spontaneously with others. If you’ve ever watched or played team sports, you know that positions or roles give you the freedom to play with others, even if you speak different languages!

Episode #5:  PRACTICE(S)

There are two ways of looking at the word ‘practice‘ – one is the act of practicING to ‘get something’ you want to be able to do. The other is the act of developing A PRACTICE so that you create conditions so that what you want can get to YOU.

Episode #7:  LIFT-OFF

In the moment of performance, we drop conscious practice.  We speak fluently in a language where perfection is irrelevant, because we are simply revealing what it means to be human.

Lift-off is the moment when we stop trying to perfect, and fully embrace what we are and what we can do in this moment.
