Meditation and the Spirit of Creativity
2011-06-16 Five Obstacles to Creative Expression and Their Antidotes 41:28
Sandy Boucher discusses five ways we keep ourselves from pursuing our writing or visual art or any other creative endeavor: 1) The fear of having nothing to say, 2) the fear of the Blank Page, 3) the fear of criticism, (4) the fear of failure, 5) the fear of finishing. With warmth and humor, she suggests attitudes and practices to help us soften and open fully to expressing what is important to us.
