“We dance round in a ring and suppose, but the Secret sits in the middle and knows.” Robert Frost
Are you interested in unlocking your creative potential? I invite you to join me on an expressive path to personal growth. For 10-weeks we’ll dance, create collages, practice mindfulness, become joy magnets, grow new brain cells, make friends with failure, start positively pretending, and much, much more.
Want to play? I posted my first Creative Play Idea on Twitter earlier today. Here it is: Build a cozy nest in your bed with paints, pens, a journal, glue stick and magazines. Jump in and start collaging your joys! (I ended up creating 3 collages in an hour). Spending that time focused on joy and creative play was hugely relaxing for me. It also helped me get clarity on where to focus my energy for the rest of the afternoon. There are many studies which talk of the de-stressing benefits of creative expression. It definitely worked for me!
I am in the last semester of my Master’s program at Buffalo State College’s International Center for Creative Studies. As a Master’s Project I’ve chosen to share my creative unfolding with anyone in the world who wants to come along. The ‘official’ title is: Ten Keys to Unlocking Creative Potential: The Expressive Path to Personal Growth. I’ll be tweeting creative prompts, lots of encouraging quotes, and other fun bits of information through http://twitter.com/quotejoy I’m hoping to recruit a creatively courageous tribe of tweeps who are willing to share their comments, insights, ideas and awakenings along the way.
The whole idea is to explore creative possibilities while building new neural pathways. I promise it will be fun and enlightening. Have questions? Feel free to comment. My vision is to inspire joy and a chain-reaction of creative action around the world. This project is officially launched…let the fun begin!
