Creativity happens when we actively engage. Everyone is creative, and when you directly engage in life, you change the world in tiny and enormous ways. Creativity brings fulfillment and connection to self, others, our world at large. Creativity is the driver of civilization, the keeper of culture, and the foundation of resilience.
Yet where to start on our creative path? How does creativity look day-to-day? How do we choose one intention over another, one direction over another in our world of vast possibilities and challenges?
The key to creative focus and sustainability is your Purpose. Everyone is born with a Purpose. Your Purpose has been with you since childhood. When you reclaim your Purpose, creativity becomes joyful, motivated, and sustainable. In this presentation, Diana Rowan walks you through practices that help define your Purpose: you’ll walk away with a working version of your unique Purpose plus three personal action steps for living your Purpose.
Diana Rowan is a Creative Alchemist and founder of the Bright Way Guild, an academy dedicated to activating the creative within all of us. The classical inquiry of “what makes a good life?” has driven Diana from her youngest years. Having recovered from a soul-crushing case of stage fright and other challenges, Diana believes that by shining light on the darkness we fear, we all become courageous purveyors of bright knowledge and live the good life.
Diana was born in Dublin, Ireland to college student parents, setting the stage for a lifetime of lively learning and seeking. Soon thereafter, her father became a diplomat, taking his family on a cosmopolitan pilgrimage worldwide. Respect for the arts has always been second nature in Diana’s family, along with a deep streak of mysticism embodied by her astrologer mother. This unusual combination of intellectual seeking, cultural bridging, mystical opening and artistic engagement are the hallmarks of Diana’s life, whether that be in composing music, teaching, writing, or choosing a wine. Diana holds an MM in classical piano performance and a PhD in Music Theory. Her book The Bright Way: Five Steps to Freeing the Creative Within released March 2020 from New World Library.Visit Diana's Website
