Imaginative Yoga, Creative Movement, Walking Meditation, Creative Sound helps one to feel one’s creativity in the body. Leaning this process allows the mind to translate what one feels and sees on the paper easily. All creativity has a process of working with the unknown to the known. Getting comfortable with the creative process early both in the body and in the mind allows one to ride the wave of exploration with total ease and enjoyment.
