Knee Deep in the Funk: Understanding the Connection Between Spirituality and Music
Music is spiritual - most people know that - it does something to you. But few people can explain what that something is.
Musicians try but usually fail. They lack a definition of spirituality or a vocabulary to express their feelings. Mystics, the clergy, gurus, and other spiritual types try to explain it and usually fail as well. And they usually don't know much about music.
Tzvi Gluckin is a musician. He is a rabbi. He has a thick resume in both fields. Knee Deep in the Funk is based on years of study, practice, performance, analysis of ancient texts, discussions with master musicians, studies with mystical masters, formal studies in both disciplines, and informal discussions with anyone who would listen.
And Knee Deep in the Funk is not fluff. It doesn't waste your time with sunsets, ticking clocks, or New Age tranquility. It is not pretentious or out of touch. It is about real people, real music, and the spiritual levels you can reach when you listen. Specifically, it discusses:
• The power of the intuitive experience in music
• The obvious but never discussed link between music, drugs, and spirituality
• The even more obvious but never discussed link between music, sex, and spirituality
• The power of vocal music and its ability to create relationships - both real and imagined
• Music as a tool in meditation and self-abandon
• Music and prayer
• Music, joy, and the power of growth
• Music as a universal language
• And much more
Knee Deep in the Funk is important. Music is a spiritual tool: it makes you happy, improves your relationships, boosts your self-image, and helps you appreciate other people. Read Knee Deep in the Funk and harness the spiritual power of music.
