The Benefits of Creative Flow Practice

If you’d like to enjoy the benefits of creative flow practice, join our closed Facebook group  for two powerful practices: Inspiration Meditation and F-r-e-e-writing. New sessions posted weekly and hundreds of practices are available in the group, each with a different creative theme. Strangely, we all resist flow practice, even when we know how super-valuable it is. Those who haven’t yet tried it resist it most. Why give time to these open-ended, free-flowing activities, which have no obvious outcomes or clear endpoints? Here’s why: seven benefits of creative flow practice to remind us just how valuable it is. Benefits of…

Go Creative! Morning Flow Practice: Inspiration Meditation and F-R-E-E-Writing

You can join our creative flow practice if you are (want to) run a passion-powered business. In our closed Facebook  Go Creative! in Business! Group, live Mon through Thurs.   Each morning, Monday through Thursday, a group of creativepreneurs gathers on Facebook to do a morning creative flow practice together.

Creative Flow Workshop: Go Creative! July Event

This month Go Creative! event for creative entrepreneurs was mid-month for the first time and a creative flow workshop. We covered three practices I personally use for keeping creative mind, body and spirit strong and flexible: Effortless Exercise (body) F-r-e-e-Writing (mind) Inspiration Meditation (spirit) And the relevance of flow practice for creativepreneurs (and how inclined we are to skip it!) Many of the creative entrepreneurs on board shared the same frustrations: Overcoming procrastination Setting intentions and sticking with them Overcoming fears Avoiding distractions We had a number of questions on all these topics and Justine had a recommendation for us: her favorite mindfulness…

Week 28 2018: What Are You Making In Your Creative Business This Week?

This week, I’ve been inviting members of The Creativist Club to share two of my morning flow practices: F-R-E-E-Writing and Inspiration Meditation. It felt a little strange, inviting people into this most private practice but I know how key that practice is to my own creative endeavors and achievements, Flow practices are a bit mysterious. You meditate or f-r-e-e-write or go on a create-date and wonder: how can this be making me more creative? Shouldn’t I be doing some real work? Yet these apparently aimless practices, in moving us away from our daily activity and mindset and immersing us in the open,…

Why Creative Entrepreneurs Need Three Kinds of Creative Practice

There are three kinds of creative practice for creative entrepreneurs and to make a living doing what you love, you’ll need to understand and practice them all.  It’s not a small goal, what you want to do: turn your passion into sufficient profit to make a living. And so it will ask some big asks of you. You’ll have to grow and stretch and transform. You’ll have to work well, play well and rest well. You’ll have to learn new things, experiment and explore, try and fail and try again until you get it right. You’ll have to put yourself out there in ways that…

Go Creative Means Go Within: Inspiration Meditation

The one thing that all the most successful CEs (creative entrepreneurs) have in common is this: they’ve developed an ability to still the thinking mind for a while, to open the channel of the subconscious, by moving into internal stillness, into silence. This freedom from mental activity, the emotional and spiritual condition it engenders, doesn’t belong only to writers and artists and sages. We all can do this. We all, already, do. But not all of us have been trained to understand and recognize it. To practice it. One powerful practice that takes us there is Inspiration Meditation. Inspiration Meditation We don’t approach…

Go Creative! Monday Motivator: Week 5, Oct 2017

What are you creating this week? Me, I’m happily preparing for my Go Creative! Day Workshop for creative entrepreneurs on November 25th. By “creative entrepreneurs” I mean those I think of as my tribe: authors, artists of all kinds, coaches, trainers and educators, counselors and healers, activists, makers and shakers and doers. Most especially those who want to make a living doing what they love, while also making a positive impact in the world. The Workshop Today I’d like to introduce you to four people who are going to help to make it a memorable day. Sandra Turnbull (left), of Goddess Kindled and moderator of the Creativist Club. Sondra appeared…
