Professor and Jazz artist Ed Sarath shares some of his music, reflects on the impact of the TM technique on his work and life, and talks about how TM Founder Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s unique approach to Vedic wisdom inspires us at this extraordinary moment in society and education.
Professor Sarath is Professor of Jazz and Contemporary Improvisation at the University of Michigan (U-M) School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, and Director of the U-M Program in Creativity and Consciousness Studies. He founded and serves as president of the International Society for Improvised Music and recently launched the Alliance for the Transformation of Musical Academe (ATMA).
Professor Sarath designed the U-M B.F.A. in Jazz and Contemplative Studies, the first degree program at a public university to include a significant component of meditation and consciousness studies. He has practiced the TM technique since 1974 and the TM-Sidhi® program since 1979.
His books Black Music Matters: Jazz and the Transformation of Music Studies (Rowman and Littlefield, 2018) and Improvisation, Creativity, and Consciousness: Jazz as Integral Template for Music, Education, and Society (SUNY/Albany, 2013) are the first to apply Integral Theory to music. Among his recordings is New Beginnings, featuring the London Jazz Orchestra performing his large ensemble compositions and flugelhorn work.
