Banyen's Description: 

 

"I'm just not that creative" is a common refrain in today's society. But according to creative coach Jacob Nordby, nothing could be further from the truth. Every human being is creative, and having a regular creative practice is a vital key to a happy and fulfilling life.

If we don't exercise our creativity regularly, our lives can feel dull, stagnant, and rote. Many people live this way and believe "this is just the way life is," without realizing that developing a regular creative practice can be the cure to what ails them.

Nordby knows this all too well. By the time he reached his mid-thirties, he was running a successful mortgage company and lived in a big house with fancy cars. But he felt like he was dying inside. Starting and maintaining a creative practice is what saved his life. Now, in this powerful book, he explains how he traded in his stagnant way of life for one full of meaning and purpose, and offers specific steps to help you build your own creative practice.

For me, spirituality and creativity describe the same thing: the way we celebrate the timeless, essential energy of life.

The Creative Cure is a call for a revolution, fostering change where all change must begin: within. This internal change will allow you to express your own creative gifts, cultivate happiness, and experience the unique feeling of fulfillment that only a creative practice can offer. Packed with powerful, transformative tasks and exercises—both playful and challenging—this book is medicine for finding and reinvigorating your creative soul.

In her foreword, Julia Cameron, author of The Artist’s Way, writes:

I think this book serves as an entryway into deep creative waters—waters that the reader may find both bracing and invigorating. I share with Nordby a love of tools that “work,” and I found myself drawn to the simplicity and subtlety of the methods he suggests for unlocking a powerful and joyous self that we may have buried or forgotten.
