Honoring the Creative Self

Kevin Fisher-Paulsen

“Every breath we take changes us. Every word we utter changes the world.”

Embrace Creativity:                

  • Creativity is a marathon, not a sprint, and you have to train your body, spirit and mind how to run that long race.  Kevin will give you a few exercises in which to build your creative muscles.
  • Creativity relies on inspiration, perspiration and desperation.  Kevin talks about how not to get in the way of that which can inspire you.
  • Creativity requires a commitment to what you believe and the story you have to tell.  Kevin will guide people to find their story, and to cherish it.
