Everyone has moments in life where they’ve fired on all ‘creative cylinders’. Imagine being able to tap into that feeling whenever you need it?
This session will be a time for creative reflection where attendees experience guided meditation to seek answers to their creative past. They’ll learn how to unlock the ability to bring that past to the present and ensure a more creative future
The Skinny: 3 things you will get from this session
- Clear understanding of the ‘when’ and ‘why’ of their previous creative brilliance
- Insights into how those past experiences can help them have more success in the future
- Action planning to activate this new knowledge
