Art as Transformation
By Judy Reeves
Wild Women, Wild VoicesI was in kindergarten, and our class and all the other elementary school students were sitting cross-legged on the polished hardwood floor of the cafeteria/auditorium for the performance of Aladdin and His Magic Lantern by a visiting high school troupe. Never before, in all the books that had been read to me, in all the stories I’d been told, in all the dramas played out on records or on the radio, never before had I experienced such magic.

Is There a Link Between Meditation and Creativity / Intelligence?
By Diana Lang
Opening to MeditationWhen you meditate you are linking up to a kind of stream of universal consciousness, like a river of ideas and creativity.

Wild Women, Wild Voices Interview
By Judy Reeves

The Zone The Fear Zone
By Tom Evans
Fears are generally a good thing. They keep us safe and sometimes even keep us alive. They emanate typically from the lower mind centres like our gut.

Nurturing Young Imaginations
"Explore the World"
By Abby Connors
NurturingI've learned a great deal about teaching creative thinking to young children from a man who wasn’t an artist, but a scientist. Richard P. Feynman was one of the greatest physicists of our time. He was well known for his work in quantum mechanics, subatomic particles, and quantum electrodynamics, and I don’t have the slightest clue as to what these are. Read more »
