What awakens my musical creativity? And how can I best express it?


If you are looking for a musical pathway which embraces your humanity and essential spirituality, providing ways for expressing your inner feelings while connecting with others, this program may be for you.

The SongLife Training is an integrative method of tools, tips, and techniques in songwriting, spontaneous songmaking, songleading, and guitar artistry.

Michael Stillwater brings a lifetime of creative wisdom and experience to help anyone ready to move forward in their musical life. His artistic gift for creating insightful songs in the moment has touched thousands of people around the world, and through SongLife Training he now reveals the inner workings of his uniquely inspired approach for anyone interested and ready to learn.

‘Re-writing the lyrics of our lives’ is a central key to the process, journeying with one’s own story in song. Through the interactive SongSourcing method this approach may be applied to reflecting another person’s story in song as an empathic healing and transformative art.

Together with Michael’s gentle, insightful and challenging encouragement, the mutual support and co-creative atmosphere which naturally arises during the training provides a joyful field of possibility for all participants.
