At the close of last year, I completed The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity, a book and self-study program developed by Julia Cameron in the 1990s. The course helped me reclaim my identity as an artist and return to my passions with new energy and confidence.
After spending my life surrounded by highly-creative people, I’ve realised creativity is a mindset, not just a process of exploring and making. Could it be possible that creative people’s brains really do work differently? Writing by Scott Barry Kaufman and Carolyn Gregoire recently introduced me to compelling research conducted in the 1960s by psychologist and creativity researcher Frank X. Barron.
