The importance of being aligned with yourself
Letting our natural creative flow dry up can even make us sick, because we do not live in harmony with our true nature. “Musicians have to make music, artists have to paint, poets have to write if they want to live in peace with themselves,” said Abraham Maslow, the founding father of humanistic psychology.
Get in touch with your creative source
Each and every one of us already has everything it takes to be creative. The only question is: how do we access our creative source? How can we tap into and find the artist in us? This is where Yoga can help us.
“Inspiration exists, but it has to find you at work.”
What is creativity? The workshop explores:
Would you consider yourself to be creative? Do you know creative people? Standard “creatives”: painters, sculptors, designers, dancers, composers
Everyday or maverick “creatives”: your child lying about homework, how you organise your shopping, your thought process for challenges, entrepreneurs – all working outside the normal parameters
Creativity driven by necessity – Prompted by extremes/external influences/change/drugs
Is creativity “on tap” possible?
- Guided imagery sequences
- Nurturing your physical state
- Moving outside your comfort zone
- The human juicer
- Using yoga
Yoga as well as creativity is about getting moving, facing up to your self-doubts silencing those harsh judgments from teachers. Just start with a deep breath or a few words to mark an empty page, the rest will follow by itself. One thing leads to another and we get into the flow.
