Episode 21: How art can be a doorway to heaven, hell and beyond

In the interview I speak with the violinist Miha Pogacnik on how classical music can be a way to unleash the creative potential lying dormant in individuals and organizations. He further addresses how music and art can be a tool for leaders wishing to create change in the world. Embedded in great music are archetypes, patterns and themes that speak to who we really are as human beings, and even more – if we dare – can give us hints to what we actually can become.

If you feel inspired or provoked by our conversation feel free to add your comments after the interview. You can also send in a written piece of work and get it published together with this episode. Further details can be found here.
