We all need more creativity – to solve problems, start important projects, repair relationship challenges, help others in need, and simply to be the fullest possible expression of ourselves.

Thanks to significant research in disease prevention, we now know that creativity is also good for our health. Finding our creative flow in artistic or other soul-satisfying endeavors makes our immune system stronger, our cardiovascular system more efficient, and our cognitive function sharper and more clear.

In this 3-session course (*3.5 hour session followed by two 75-minute sessions), you will be immersed in exploring your own creativity through music, art, dance, creative writing and other forms of creative expression. You will learn the science supporting the link between creativity and enhanced health, how to refine talents you barely knew you had, and how to keep creativity alive in your life as your personal well-being strategy!

As a part of the class, each participant will receive a thumb drive containing an audio series of guided meditations, a 19-slide inspiration slide show, a video mini-documentary of the What Makes Your Heart Sing project, and 2 articles on creativity.

NOTE: This class qualifies for a 2019 BeWell Engagement incentive

Instructor: Bruce Cryer has been a Broadway actor/singer/dancer, entrepreneur, CEO of HeartMath, mentor, strategic consultant, photographer, artist, and author. He is co-author of From Chaos to Coherence: The Power to Change Performance.
