Body Intelligence Summit 2016

Creativity Starts In Our Bodies

With Gillian Ferrabee
Hosted by Dr. Katie Hendricks

Most of us think of creativity as something that comes from outside of us, or as a talent that we are born with, or as a way of thinking. Creativity is actually an extraordinary ongoing dance between the information we receive through the conduit of our bodies, and the way we shape and connect that information in new ways with new meaning. The more aware and engaged we are with our body intelligence, the more agile and expanded is our creativity. During this session you will learn:
• How our body intelligence connects directly to our creativity.
• The basic neuroscience of creative thinking
• Tools to try at home to experience the connection between our body intelligence and out creativity.
