From the Author:

My Lessons With Kumi is a novel based on ideas IÕve gathered from experts in many fields over a period of three decades. Special credit goes to John Grinder and Richard Bandler, the original co-creators of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), whose ideas are woven into this teaching tale. I have learned much from NLP developers Steve and Connirae Andreas, Leslie Cameron, Judith DeLozier, Robert Dilts, David Gordon, Michael Grinder and Steve Lankton. The ground-breaking work of family therapist Virginia Satir and hypnotherapist Milton H. Erickson also inspired me. Affectionate thanks to Toronto psychiatrist Raymond D. Leibl, M.D., in whose study group I first experimented with many of the ideas that led to this book. Also to Paul Madaule, director of The Listening Centre in Toronto, for his speech therapy techniques. My worldwide theater studies have shaped much of My Lessons With Kumi. I want to thank Stanislaw Brozowski of the Polish Mime Theater, and Richard Cieslak and Jerzy Grotowski of the Polish Theater Laboratory for their techniques in physical training. To actor/teacher Bill Hickey and voice teacher Eugene Brice of the H-B Studio in New York I owe my acting and vocal training. Thanks also to the actors of New YorkÕs Open Theater for teaching me the laughing excercise. My sources for natural healing through nutrition are numerous, including Adele Davis, Lavon J. Dunne, Julian Whitaker, M.D., and James and Phyllis Balch. From my wife, Ulla, I learned how to translate their nutritional knowledge into delicious meals. Many professionals and friends read my manuscript and gave valuable suggestions or technical information: computer specialist Alan Hahn; violinist and student of psychotherapy Janie Kim; actor/theater manager Jens Kohler; composer and teacher David Maslanka; computer software manager Bruce Anderson; graphologist Gloria Lokay; occupational therapist Roula Makhlouta; neurosurgeon Samuel Brendler, M.D,; performer/teacher/educator Kenneth Radnofsky and book producer/literary agent, Sandra J. Taylor. Special thanks to editor Steve Andreas for his incisive edits and suggestions, and for understanding what this book is about.I enjoy the mixed blessing of living in a family of professional editors. I am grateful to my wife, Ulla, whose ruthless red pen made this book more readable, and to the laser-eyed scrutiny of my screenwriter son, Neal, whose suggestions added life to My Lessons With Kumi. Most of all, my appreciation for UllaÕs patience in sharing her life with this book for eight years.

From the Back Cover:

AUTHOR BIO:Michael Colgrass is a composer, writer and lecturer, who gives personal development workshops all over the world for performers, students and professional groups. A graduate of the University of Illinois, he is a Tanglewood scholar, twice Guggenheim Fellow, and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Music. He won an Emmy for the PBS documentary ÒSoundings: The Music of Michael Colgrass,Ó which features his unique teaching methods. The Rockefeller Foundation created a special program for Colgrass called ÒArtist in the Theater at Large,Ó which led to studies in mime, acting, dance and directing in New York, commedia dellÕ arte in Milan and avant garde theater with Jerzy GrotowskiÕs Polish Theater Laboratory in Wroclaw, Poland. In l985 Colgrass became a certified trainer of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and today combines these techniques with his 45 years of professional performing experience in his ÒExcellence In PerformanceÓ workshops. He has trained more than 25,000 people in Europe, Britain, South America, South Africa, Indonesia and throughout the United States and Canada. ColgrassÕ strategies for creativity were modeled by NLP co-founder John Grinder and also by Robert Dilts and David Gordon, and are described in DiltsÕ book, Tools For Dreamers (l991). Colgrass originated ÒDeep Listening,Ó a technique for using hypnosis with audiences to heighten concentration, which is featured in the book Leaves Before The Wind (l991), a collection of innovative NLP ideas edited by Charlotte Bretto, Judith DeLozier, John Grinder and Sylvia Topel. His articles on creativity and life skills have appeared in The New York Times, The Christian Science Monitor and Music Magazine. His first book, My Lessons With Kumi, is the summation of his work as a trainer and performer.
