Mindfulness and Creativity

The Creative Spark Podcast - Episode 4

How can mindfulness practice increase your creativity?

What if mindfulness practice can help you overcome creative resistance?

Jenn will be sharing several examples how mindfulness can open the creative well. Following systematic steps in building a mindfulness practice allows to find the flow experience, in which time flies by and we are productive without lots of effort. And this holds true for all areas of creative thinking that don’t necessarily have to be art related.

Mindfulness and creativity go hand in hand. They are sister disciplines that have a lot in common, mutually benefit one another, and stimulate similar areas in the brain. In this Creative Spark conversation we will discuss how mindfulness can stimulate your creative potential, and how you can use mindfulness to generate new and creative ideas.
