Connecting her multiple callings: visual artist, musician, harp builder, wordsmith. Now clear and energized vs. pulled in too many directions

Clarity of artistic vision, increased confidence to share and perform, support from a safe, deep, inspiring Community

Some member results over the past few months:

• having their best practice session EVER in 15 years of playing

• coming into a performance feeling frazzled by the burdens of these times and absolutely nailing it

• breaking through creative block and finally hearing plus writing down the song that's been trying to come through for years

• improvising for friends and family for the first time ever and discovering 2 hours flew by while everyone (themselves included) was enchanted

breaking out of a serious 5-year slump and feeling joyously motivated for 2022

...and we have so many more stories like this!
Will yours be next?

Transform from  being stuck & demoralized

Are you harping from the outside-in instead of flowing with your harp?

I understand!
For years, I gave up on music and didn't play a single note.
I'd rather slam my hand in the doorjam than perform.
Even lessons became stressful, secretly whispering "I'm not good enough" the whole time.
My worst fear? That I didn't have "it" -Talent.

Now I'm a full-time musician, author and teacher, living my creative life to the full.

What about all those fears I felt?

I now know those fears were illusions, although they felt so real.

I got past my fears and am living my best creative life - so can you!

How do I know you can reconnect to and renew your creativity?

The proof:
I've witnessed hundreds of our Circle members become creatively reborn:
practicing with joy,
performing with confidence,
winning grants,
making videos,

and so much more.

The secret to consistent creativity: Dedicated Community

The best way to regain your creativity is through a community 
of harpists who actually live the creative life.

In our Circle you gain access hours of live interaction and support EVERY WEEK
all grounded in the proven Bright Way System.

For a fraction of what it would cost to hire a private coach,
our Circle provides the support you need as a creative.
All while honoring your unique, real-life journey -
no dry materials that don't reflect what you're really facing!

"I happened to look at back at the intro I wrote when I first joined the Circle. This was my reason for signing up: "I want to reconnect with my harp. Learn music more easily & quickly. Renew inspiration to play." At the time I wasn't sure any of that was possible.

Now here I am and I'm amazed how far I've come on this journey. I've exceeded my original intentions and I did not get here by doing everything or doing things perfectly.”

Lori F., Colorado USA

"Hands down the part I like best about the Circle is being able to proceed at my own pace without pressure from others. With my current medical concerns, I'm afraid strict deadlines might have forced me to drop out.

I love the informative lessons, the community of harpists that are so willing to share their knowledge and music, and the inspiration and encouragement I feel as I move through the Circle. I also appreciate being able to print out the topics so I can review them as needed. The course is very well organized and the team is so responsive." 

Marti R., Colorado USA

Bright Way founder Dr. Diana Rowan

I was born in Ireland and started music at age 8 with piano, then harp. Although I performed worldwide to much outward success, I secretly suffered crippling performance anxiety. This terrible fear made me quit music - the heart of my creative life - for years.

But I missed music so much! I knew I had to somehow reclaim my musical voice, otherwise my life would be unfulfilled. Thus began an epic journey with many twists and turns. 
This journey became The Bright Way: Five Steps to Freeing the Creative Within, which I'm honored to share with you now.

The Bright Way:

  •  reconnects you with your deepest reasons for creating
  • uses joy (not fear) to skill-build
  • empowers you to share your creativity with courage
  • cultivates meaningful community with you, offering you a safe, supported crucible for your creativity

I hold a PhD in Music Theory (world harp techniques for composers) and a Master of Music (classical piano performance). I compose, teach, write, perform, and research creativity obsessively.

What else do Circle Members say?

Margie B.

What is the program like?

I find the trainings beautifully organized and to the point. What fascinates me is the way that almost all of the questions that are asked can be answered within the context of the 5 Steps and 5 Essential Elements of BWS. While I embrace a certain artistic temperament, I still like to have tables, charts, and circles (in particular!) in which to organize information."

Margie B. - Vermont, USA
Janet D.

What is the value of the circle?

“I have a habit of signing up for something, then regretting it, or not using it, but still getting charged forever. With BWHC, I have gotten way more than I ever imagined. I have improved skills, gotten more disciplined about practice, reached goals instead of reaching for goals.

Janet D. - Florida, USA
Sally C.

What kind of results can you expect to see?

“I feel so excited and invigorated. BWHC gives me a lot of impetus and support and hope!

Suni Smith, Hawaii USA
Helen M.

What specific goals have you achieved?

"-Professional development in a broad range of musical skills with a harp focus.
-A greater focus on goals in teaching, performing and community work.
-Consolidation of harp resources including music and harps.
-Harp friends worldwide."

Helen M. - Australia

Is ​Our Circle Right For You?

Ideally, we would love everyone join us.
However, please check below to see if we're a good fit for you:

Who is the Circle for?
You'll love our Circle if

  • you want to play with more expression & creativity

  • you want to identify your unique creative voice & message

  • you want to progress & stay motivated

  • you who want to stay inspired long-term

  • you want to perform with confidence, joy & power

  • you desire true creative community

Who the Circle is not for

  • If you know a little about hand placement and some chords, you're good to go - if you're a total beginner, for hand health reasons we recommend some sessions with a 1-1 teacher for basic technique brush-up. 

  • If you want a drill sergeant rather than an inspired, collaborative guide, the Circle is not a fit.

  • Our Circle is founded in trust, mutual respect and sacred reciprocity. This culture, lovingly developed over 5 years, helps our members feel safe and strong enough to create authentically. Therefore, harpists who are competitive rather than collaborative are not a fit for our Circle.

Breakthroughs you can expect as a Circle member:

Kristen R.

"I wasn't sure if it would be worth the time, effort, and money.  I thought about it the first round and decided against it - after all, there are thousands of online training programs - but by the time the second round came around, I knew I needed a shot in the arm with harp and also my other endeavors. I had had more experience with Diana as a teacher/online mentor, and felt that the value would be there. But honestly, the fact that Diana said it would apply to other areas of life was probably what pushed me to take the plunge.
I have resumed regular practice and clarified my sense of Purpose. Practice is more focused and purposeful and as a result I'm a better player!"


"I was concerned whether the program would be a good fit for me. It was difficult to envision what is "included/offered" because BKHC is more abstract than say a 6-week course on learning to count. Also, could I be disciplined enough for self-paced? Of course, cost is always a consideration, but when considered as an investment in me it really is minimal.
My results have included building courage to reach beyond my greatest fears. Im putting the focus on my purpose and able to make guilt-free decisions that are in keeping with it. Im looking at music from a different point of view. Not just dots on a page to be played. I love, love, love the community, discussions and sharing of information, plus being able to put the learning process in order.”

BKHC provides direction, encouragement and a solid foundation to build upon.”


Here is my experience this afternoon when performing: I had a bit of nerves at the beginning and kept reminding myself of my Purpose in my mind was wonderful! I felt so good that I stopped by a retirement residence I wanted to visit and played for them as well. They loved it and asked me back! Self-trust, yes, pure love and divine energy!”
