These workshops are an introduction to what I've discovered in more than 40 years of being a proefessional creative, in the music and the arts industry: the co-creating approach.
Co-creating is about creating with life as it is now, with our current circumstances and resources. It also entails connecting with unviersal intelligence, the material you're working with, or the spirit of the project you're involved in.
You begin to see yourself as one part of the creation process, not the sole creator, rather a partner to other creative forces in your life: time, circumstances, life, people, resources...
4 CREATE COHERENCE TO RECEIVE INSPIRATION, INSIGHTS AND IMPULSES
Most of us have learned to use our minds, i.e. the brains in our heads, as primary instrument of intelligence and processing of information. However, there are at least two more centres of intelligence that we can use to access our full potential: the heart and the gut.
Let us activate, nourish and strengthen each „brain“ and balance them to create coherence between them. This is indeed a powerful tool of creation and access so much more of our potential.
Learn how to use your mind to build strength and confidence, to use your heart as a guide, and follow your gut feeling to act and move forward.
5 CYCLES OF CREATION
After experiencing different forms of artistic expression, we will now take time to reflect on the process itself, finding some general principles. This will be supplemented by looking at how nature creates. We develop general guidelines that will support us in our future processes of creating.
Creativity is a non-linear process, it can be totally paradox. I will share what I have learned as a professional composer and artist.
And we will look at (daily) practice, what gets me going, the beliefs that stop me from creating, and generally held beliefs in our society that affect us.
6 CO-CREATIING – THE FORM OF CREATION IN THE 21ST CENTURY
How it works and why it's a good idea.
Connecting your inner pulse, that we have explored so far, to the outer pulse of your life.
What are the resources in your life at the present moment? Who can be of help in practical terms? How can you create the time, the resources, and the conditions that are necessary to make your dream come true and fly to the moon?
