Creativity Unzipped redefines “creativity” to include the shaping of our lives. It addresses the reader as a creative person who is daily creating and sharing stories, daily creating the experiences they encounter with the tools of their intentions, thoughts and words. This book is not a How-To book, but a Why-To Book, exploring the extraordinary value and positive benefits of a fully expressed life. It examines the obstacles we face as creators and imaginative people, illustrates how our cultures and religions discourage originality, and uses personal anecdotes to show the many paths being forged by creative individuals today who are shaping a new and sustainable culture.
Creativity Unzipped uses original research and scientific studies on human consciousness, mindfulness, and brain plasticity to illustrate the advances and transformations we are undergoing at this unique point in our evolution when humankind—for the first time in history—realizes it has a role to play in the preservation of the planet. This book is rooted in Rumi’s idea to “stop learning, start knowing.” It not only supports the harvesting of our personal experiences for the wisdom to be found there, but shows how people have done it and how they have benefitted. Creativity Unzipped provides the first step for those who believe they are not creative, and the next step for those who know they are. It will raise your consciousness, lower your anxiety, heighten your confidence and warm your heart. Creativity Unzipped delivers the best news about creativity that you’ve heard in a long time!
