THE ESSENCE OF SLOWING DOWN

Creativity comes alive when our senses of hearing, taste, sight, smell, and touch are awakened and revered. And realizing the immense gift of our full sensing body often demands slowing down, getting quiet, and becoming deeply aware. The senses are our raw creative data and material. We are called to reconnect to our own nature, our own body first. To wake up to ourselves as a sensing organism, living amidst other sensing organisms. 

This practice invites you to slow down and connect with your body, with your own animal nature, before you enter into your creative practice.

CODE OF NO, OR NO COMMANDMENTS

Most of us want to say yes to our creativity more often, to give ourselves more time and space to follow our creative impulse. Our creative instinct, if it’s strongly held within, is to say yes.

Creating a Code of No means writing down your own rules for when you will say no to something that will keep you from saying yes to your creative project/s at hand. Or, write yourself up a list of ten or so No Commandments, your own personal “thou shalt nots.”
