dear creator,

Deep inside of you, you are capable of so much creativity and Influence, if you only allow your intuition to lead the way. There is a part of you that just knows. It knows just the right ideas, strategies, wording, imagery, colors and styles you must use in a given moment. will you dare to trust and access this inner knowing?

As we gain more knowledge about the outside world, though — and as the outside world now immediately influences us — we sometimes lose touch with this inner judgment and we become dominated by others’ ideas and ideologies. When we lose touch with our own intuition, we ultimately lose our capacity to create true, beautiful, and authentic things. Intuition, as they say, is the basis of all good works of art.

The Intuitive Creative is a half-day workshop that aims to help you realize the power of your own intuition and how to apply it in the creative process. In this workshop, we will try to silence the chatter of the rational mind for a moment and just create from a place of inner knowing, trusting that whatever you produce will lead you to an insight — be it about yourself, your ideas, your creative abilities, and maybe even your true purpose.

By employing your inner judgment in the creative process, we believe you will have better creative decisions and produce work that can move others and sustain you in return.

Many of the world’s most respected artists and designers are very much in touch with their intuition. Both Steve Jobs and Albert Einstein sees its utmost importance.

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.

We will try to understand how we can trust and work with our intuition better so that our creations could be more meaningful, authentic, and ultimately effective.

Also — we will ask your full trust. *wink wink*

We just love quoting Einstein :D

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.”
