What Do You Want to Create?

Perhaps the greatest myth about creativity is the idea that it’s a rare gift or genetic endowment possessed by only a few. We see an original painting, feel moved to our core by a piece of music, or read about an incredible scientific discovery and mistakenly conclude that some people are born with creative talent while others are not. Learn how to tap into your own hidden potential.

Take a Creative Leap

Whether you are creating a new business, a work of art, or a relationship, every creative act requires a quantum leap in awareness. Learn how to awaken your creative response.

Jump-start Your Creativity

When you play and open yourself to new experiences, you enter into the present moment. You see the world with fresh eyes, relinquishing rigid ideas about how things “ought to be” and opening yourself to creative solutions and transformation.  Here are a few activities to jump-start your creativity.
