The Soul of Creativity: Insights Into the Creative Process
Tona Pearce Myers
New World Library, Sep 22, 2011 - Self-Help - 240 pages
?There is no single definition of creativity. It is as wide-ranging as the people who seek it: writers, painters, musicians, actors — indeed anyone who desires a richer, more rewarding life. Many consider it inaccessible — limited to gifted artists and celebrities. But as the extraordinary contributors to this book show, it is really everyone’s birthright, too often shoved to the recesses of our psyches by the demands of everyday life. From the vibrant naturalist and poet Diane Ackerman, to musical theorist Don Campbell, to inspirational author SARK, these talented contributors guide us through the creative process with clarity and insight. They remind us that inspiration is always available to those willing to realize the power and possibility of their true creative being. Contributors include: Diane Ackerman • Pat B. Allen • Christina Baldwin • Hal Zina Bennett • Echo Bodine • Jean Shinoda Bolen • Don Campbell • Lucia Capacchione • Michelle Cassou • Judith Cornell • Adriana Díaz • Riane Eisler • Linda Firestone • John Fox • Robert Fritz • Aviva Gold • Robert Grudin • Jean Liedloff • Ann Linnea • Shaun McNiff • Eric Maisel • Jill Mellick • Stephen Nachmanovitch • Kent Nerburn • Jan Phillips • SARK
