This book is not a How-To book, but a Why-To Book, exploring the extraordinary value and positive benefits of a fully expressed life. It examines the obstacles we face as creators and imaginative people, illustrates how our cultures and religions discourage originality, and uses personal anecdotes to show the many paths being forged by creative individuals today who are shaping a new and sustainable culture. It will raise your consciousness, lower your anxiety, heighten your confidence and warm your heart. Creativity Unzipped delivers the best news about creativity that you’ve heard in a long time!
