“Results have been phenomenal. I have been motivated to daily practice, which in turn has given me confidence. My husband and daughters just say "WOW"! Nothing compares to what you get from BKHC."
Sally C., Wisconsin USA
How our Circle Works
"I happened to look at back at the intro I wrote when I first joined BKHC. 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
"I feel BKS is a deep well from which to draw and go ever deeper over time."

Circle format: the details
24/7 Dynamic Private Group: you are not alone on your journey. Our trusted community understands. We are generous and kind in sharing our experiences with each other. This is a safe space.

Focus on what you need right now in our Circle, don’t worry about doing “everything.” This in itself is a great creative lesson!
"Hands down the part I like best about BKHC 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."

What else do Circle Members say?
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 BKS. 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
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 BKHC, 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
Your Guide: Dr. Diana Rowan
Irish-born Diana Rowan began music at age 8, first with piano and then harp. Although she performed worldwide to much success, she secretly suffered crippling performance anxiety. This terrible fear caused her to quit music - the heart of her creative life - literally for years.
Struggling to reclaim her musical voice began an epic journey with many twists and turns. Thus Diana developed the Bright Way System, now the rave-review book The Bright Way: Five Steps to Freeing the Creative Within (New World Library, which publishes Tolle’s The Power of Now, Alan Watts and Joseph Campbell, amongst others).
The Bright Way System:
- 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
Diana holds a PhD in Music Theory and a Master of Music degree. She appears on many recordings, composes, teaches, writes, performs and researches constantly. Diana lives in Berkeley CA, home of the Free Speech Movement and its own element, berkelium.
Is Our Circle Right For You?
Ideally, we would love everyone join us. However, please check below to see if this program is a good fit for you:
Breakthroughs you can expect as a Circle member:
"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. I’m putting the focus on my purpose and able to make guilt-free decisions that are in keeping with it. I’m 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 and...it 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!”
