Intentional Creativity Philosophy
Intentional creativity provides a structure or process within which we can identify our own authentic voice. This voice is different than the constant negative mind chatter we take for granted as being ‘ours’. We gain recognition of this distinction through inquiry and deep listening as the creative act unfolds. This act of simply noticing and paying attention transforms dense patterns and old stories into spaciousness where wonder and mystery flow. This process naturally empowers us to make choices that are life giving for ourselves and our community.
Intentional creativity is a mindfulness practice in a sense; being present with what is happening in the moment and bringing that awareness into clear focus. The intentional act of creating is simply the container in which this practice takes place and also the vehicle through which once sees the results of this process; personally expressed beauty. Gradually, listening only to one’s own internal guidance system takes over and the deepest desire of the heart is joyfully revealed.
