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 instantly give you the power to work spontaneously with other people. If you’ve ever watched or played team sports, you know that roles or positions give you the freedom to play spontaneously 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.
Episode #9: AUTHENTICITY & WHOLENESS
In this video we are exploring authenticity & wholeness as they relate to the “Strings of Passion” principles we explored in the first 7 conversations.
Episode #10: RELATIONSHIPS
In this video we are exploring relationships as they relate to the “Strings of Passion” principles we explored in the first 7 conversations.
Episode #11: ANXIETY
How can we deal with anxiety? Where does it comes from? How to break it down and how to deconstruct the impulses that disconnect us from each other (and ourselves) when we’re anxious?
Episode #14: What is FLOW? (And how do I find it?)
Are you struggling getting from point A to point B? Are you getting distracted? What is keeping me from fluency in my life?
In this video we are talking about flow – What it is, how to find it, and the difference between straight focus versus curved focus.
