** Stanton’s Staff Selection - 2007 **

In The Musician's Soul James Jordan sets off on a quest toward spiritual music making. In The Musician's Spirit, he continues the search by engaging the power of personal stories to enhance musicianship. And now, in The Musician's Walk, the final publication in the trilogy, Jordan confronts the ethical questions musicians face in the course of their work. The ethical "walk" musicians take is like a journey through a labyrinth - as we walk toward the center, turns and challenges confront us. When we are open to changes in our course, we can move closer to the center of the labyrinth, closer to that core musical experience. In Section One: On the Threshold, Jordan discusses moving into light and wakefulness, taking the walk one step at a time, the loneliness of musicians, and the importance of a compassionate awareness. In Section Two: Journeying In, he reveals why artists sometimes have contentious relationships and sets out the ethical roles of musicians. Section Three: The Resting Place provides a source of contemplation of our "one body, two selves." The concluding Section Four: Journeying Out presents guidelines for maintaining and improving self-awareness and exercises for the contemplative soul. Jordan writes, "To become an aware musician is the final part of the musician's journey. To be fully aware (not focused) is to be totally aware of oneself and the world in which one exists. When awareness is brought to music making after some important internal spiritual exploration and life storying, the human energy imparted unlocks the true nature of the art we love and adore."
