Peak performance can only be achieved with mental calm and clarity, and this applies to artistic as well as academic performance. Some people seem to innately possess it; others must learn it. Mindfulness meditation helps to level the playing field. This workshop explores Koru mindfulness, which is based on Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, an eight-week evidence-based program developed at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in the 1970s. Dr. Kristine Hurst-Wajszczuk, associate professor of voice, has been researching performance anxiety management for twenty years.
