CALCULUS OF LIFE

NAVIGATING OUR PATH TO TRANSCENDENCE

The Calculus of Life is my method (and forthcoming book) that anyone can use to access their higher potential in every field of being. It developed from my studies of music, resonance and various mind-body practices. The method is comprehensive; starting with the physical renewal of health and often extending into transcendental states, including Unity with all of creation.

ENERGETICS OF PERFORMANCE

FOR MUSICIANS AND PERFORMANCE ARTISTS

What do the very best musicians and performance artists do that others may miss... things that most people might not believe could make a difference? Energetics of Performance sessions take you through a systematic series of techniques that top players use - sometimes consciously but more often subconsciously - to achieve peak and even extraordinary levels of performance.​

MONETTE INSTRUMENTS

CUSTOM MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS FOR 40 YEARS

Monette instruments are truly custom built for each individual client we work with. They are designed to reduce the interference that often exists between the musician, their higher creative impetus, and their audience—even if their audience is just themselves. Our mouthpieces dramatically improve the performance of other non-Monette instruments as well. 

Dave Monette

Dave Monette has been creating state-of-the-art musical instruments since 1983 through his music company, the David G. Monette Corporation. He taught public Kundalini Yoga and meditation classes in Chicago in the 1980s, and in Portland, Oregon since the 1990s. Over the last four decades he has led Yoga/meditation clinics and workshops at universities and music schools on four continents. Artists and arts-oriented people the world over know him not only from his work in the music field, but by his orientation to esoteric Yoga, meditation, and his holistic approach to working with clients.

Dave is certified as a Craniosacral Therapist by the Carol Gray Center for Craniosacral Studies. His first workshop based on the advanced Raja Yoga meditations in his forthcoming book was given at the Craft in America Center in Beverly Hills in 2015. Since then, an international mix of clients visit his studio for Calculus of Life table sessions and intensives. His book includes session accounts with Grammy, Pulitzer, and Oscar winning artists. (Testimonials below.)

 

Dave’s holistic approach to resonance in and beyond the music world has been written up in The Wall Street Journal, The Chicago Tribune, The Atlantic Monthly, and Industrial Design Magazine. He has been featured in two PBS Television specials (1987 and 2015). He’s given presentations to national and international groups, including the Materials Research Society, the American Physical Society, the Adidas design group, the Society of North American Goldsmiths, and the Nike Corporation’s annual Designer’s Conference. Various design teams from other large corporations have consulted with him on his meditative approach to innovation, including companies as diverse as General Electric and Procter and Gamble.
