You are an artist (yes, you).
Creativity is not a rare skill to be accessed by a privileged few. Creativity is your nature, a sacred practice which awakens the inner child and offers medicine for the soul.
The Art of You unlocks the secrets of the creative process. Whatever form your art takes – writing, painting, music, business, performance, marketing, technology, or social media content – this book will help you actualize your unique higher purpose, turn your imagination into reality, and transform both yourself and the world around you.
In a world of increasing uncertainty, creativity is more important than ever. Creativity helps us navigate the unknown and build a better future.
The Yin & Yang of Creativity
The Art of You is divided into two main sections: Yin (Creative Being) and Yang (Creative Doing). Both are essential to creativity.
Yin activities include: Setting an intention, finding inspiration, cultivating intuition, and restoring your energy. Yang activities include finding your style, experimenting with technique, launching projects, and growing an audience.
This book offers a blueprint, including practices and rituals, for each stage of the process.
The Art of You includes several full color illustrations and memes.
