MINDFULNESS FOR CREATIVITY (a book and CD/download package) is a sister volume to the international bestseller Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Finding Peace in a Frantic World by Professor Mark Williams and Dr Danny Penman. It contains a 4-week programme for enhancing creativity, improving decision making and improving happiness at work and at home.
The original Mindfulness was written for those struggling to cope with the frantic pace of modern life. MINDFULNESS FOR CREATIVITY is written for those who want to optimise their work, life and overall wellbeing. The simple mindfulness techniques at the heart of the book have been proven to enhance creativity, problem solving and decision making. They also dissolve anxiety, stress and depression while enhancing mental resilience and overall wellbeing. The four week programme takes just 10-20 minutes per day.
The easy-to-follow programme works by clearing your mind and allowing innovative ideas to take form and crystallise. This helps you to spontaneously 'see' the solution to a problem, to conjure up new ideas, or to create works of art and design with true insight and flair. The programme also helps build the courage necessary for you to follow your ideas wherever they should lead - and the resilience to cope with the inevitable knockbacks.
This book will help your mind work more effectively so that you can solve problems faster, more intuitively and have the inner confidence to drive your ideas forward.
The accompanying CD contains 6 meditations that you can use to build an ongoing practice, mixing and matching meditations to suit your circumstances.
