Where does the creative spark come from? Both from within (such as our imagination and intuition), and from without (the world, the muses, the collisions). This session explores the sources of creative desire and creative action and how to find and tap them. We'll use creative writing as our form of expression, but the learnings apply to any creative endeavor.

Three Key Takeaways:
  • Creative energy and creative action come from both without and within
  • Different forms of awareness are needed to locate the creative forces within ourselves and without, in the world
  • We can deliberately cultivate these forces and use them in our creative process
