#113 with Vinnie Stergin 

Vinnie is a musician, artist & educator. Over the past 20 years he has taught, coached & inspired hundreds of students from all walks of life to explore their creativity and experience the transformative power of music and specifically “The Mindful Ukulele Method”


·      Playing music and practicing mindfulness allows for a deep experience that taps into the mind-body connection.

·      Music and mindfulness can help you gain a new perspective for dealing with chronic stress.

·      The learning of a new skill (playing the Ukulele) combined with creating new mindfulness habits create new spaces where lasting change can happen (are you game?).

·      The ukulele is an inexpensive instrument and easy to play – what do you have to lose? Sign up for Vinnie’s free 4-part course: https://happydoc.mindfulukulelemethod.com

·      Shout out to The Tarbox Ramblers (who got me through my doctoral program) -  check them out here: https://www.tarboxramblers.com/band

·      There is value in using music and creativity as portals to insights you just won’t have if you don’t allow yourself SPACE to reflect.

·      Have you considered making music as part of your self-care practice? 

·      Learning an instrument might just be the antidote to burnout – give yourself a break and have more fun!

·      Stop taking yourself and life so seriously – exercise your funny bone with a ukulele.

“I’ve always been very curious about people, nature and life and love to experiment, explore. I’m a constant work in progress, and love that.” – Vinnie Stergin
