Make visible what, without you,

might perhaps never have been seen.

….Robert Bresson

 

our brief time here begs the opportunity to be full and free an to live how we are meant to be….yet this is so rare and so ensconced in narrow tunnels and limiting beliefs….may the alchemy of soul belly up the truth that is felt and held and longed for……

Creative expression opens the door to the inner world of our imaginations. It is here that we make meaning of our lives. It is here that motivation takes root. The more creative we are, the more capacity we have to imagine what’s possible and make those visions real.

1. Our lives have meaning.

All life is interconnected and full of purpose. There is, as teacher and philosopher Parker Palmer says, a hidden wholeness in each of us waiting to emerge. Discovering our unique purpose is one of the great adventures of life.

2. We are all creative.

Creativity is not found just in the chosen few who exhibit artistic talent. It is a force that flows through every single one of us, allowing us to dream things up and make them happen.

3. Creative expression empowers us.

Making art—when we’re not judging ourselves—supercharges our creativity, makes us happy, and heals our wounds.

4. We are good at heart.

At the core of each person is compassion and love for the world. Creative expression gives voice to our goodness.

5. Life is an adventure to be lived, not a problem to be solved.

Something quite different—and more creative—happens when we live life from the vantage point of possibility rather than pathology.

– Peggy Taylor and Charlie Murphy

play with naked soul

A piece of art is never a finished work.

It answers a question which has been asked,

and asks a new question.
