About Kenny Werner
Kenny Werner has been a world-class pianist and composer for over 40 years and is the author of the landmark book Effortless Mastery: Liberating The Master Musician Within. The New York Times has called him a “virtuoso,” the Boston Phoenix has called him “an extraordinary gifted artist,” and his prolific compositions and recordings have won National Endowment for the Arts grants, a Grammy Award nomination and a Guggenheim Fellowship.
Kenny has created videos, lectured worldwide, and authored many articles on how people can discover the ‘master creator within’ through surrendering thoughts, which are the source of all unrest. Playing and practicing from “the space” brings one into the moment and away from the difficulties of the mind. Detaching from the mind’s thought habits connects one with their heart and true intellect. Spiritually, it connects one to the master creator within, to all that is; an ocean of consciousness. Then one’s actions naturally benefit all other living beings and the planet in general. Those actions always create the right outcomes for one’s own self. They bring the true happiness we’ve been looking for, perhaps everywhere but from within.
