It is within us, waiting to be recognized. With clarity of mind, body, and spirit comes the confidence to access all possibilities. This book is not about fixing or changing who you are but rather about how through creativity and curiosity you can increase your awareness of self and your surroundings and fully live your life.From Thomas Gokey , Adjunct Professor of Art at Syracuse University, New York:Creativity is a habit, a way of learning to see what it is you are actually looking at, to notice the weirdness and wonder of life while you are actually living it. In this book, Elke Scholz offers her guidance after years of honing her ability to be hyper-vigilant in the practice of creative living. Let all who have eyes learn to see, let all who have ears learn to listen. The world is rumbling and whirling about us. Elke Scholz will teach us how to marvel at this world and ultimately how to live in it.From Lisa Herman, Ph.D., MFT, Registered Expressive Arts Therapist, Director Creative Expression, Sofia University, Palo Alto, California:Elke Scholz is a courageous woman who through her own life’s unfolding has learned to sit with a difficult experience and hold this experience through the arts. Since the first edition of this book, Elke has continued experimenting with how to ‘sit in the swamp’ and move through the dark places, not knowing what’s to come. Through a combination of meditation practices, words of wisdom, and easy-to-follow processes, the reader will find unexpected paths to increasing his or her own creative potential.
