Creativity as Your Personal Well-Being Strategy
Are you expressing your creativity to the fullest? Do you greet each day with exuberance, joy, and love for your work? Do you make time to nurture yourself and your highest aspiration for living? Do you have an unfulfilled need to be creative again or to experiment with new creative forms?
We all need creativity to solve problems, start important projects, repair relationship challenges, help others in need, and simply to be the fullest expression of ourselves. Thanks to significant research in disease prevention, longevity, and optimal health and well-being, we now know that creativity is great for our mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health. Finding our creative flow in artistic or other soul-satisfying endeavors makes our immune system stronger, our cardiovascular system more efficient, and our cognitive function sharper and clearer.
In this 3-session online course, you will be immersed in exploring your own creativity through music, art, dance, creative writing, and photography. You will learn hands-on through a creative project of your choosing, integrating the 5 catalysts of mindfulness, movement, nature, playfulness, and artistic expression to keep creativity alive as your personal well-being strategy.
Each participant will receive a link to an audio series of guided meditations, a 19-slide inspiration slide show, a video mini-documentary of the What Makes Your Heart Sing project, and 2 articles on creativity.
Please note the 3 class dates: Class 1 on Monday, August 10. Classes 2 and 3 on Fridays, August 14 and 21.
Instructor: Bruce Cryer is the founder of Renaissance Human, former CEO of HeartMath, an executive coach and mentor, and a former singer, actor, and dancer on Broadway. He has taught at Stanford in the Health Improvement Program and the Graduate School of Business since 1997.
