"Being creative is much easier than trying to meditate or spend time just being quiet. Then they get their inspiration and their connection to self and they can be in that flow and get their ideas, their inspiration, their juices flowing."
Patti Clark has dedicated her more than 30-year career helping women - from teenage girls to empty nesters - undergo life transitions. Her book, This Way Up, is a culmination of her life's work and helps women discover a life filled with enthusiasm, creativity, and joy. Women spend so much energy caring for others, or working for others' approval, that we disconnect from our inner selves. If you've ever felt lost or confused about your purpose, this episode is a must-listen!
In this episode, we discuss Patti's book, the career renaissance that may come with an empty nest, being in touch with your deepest sense of self, the role that internal fear plays in our lives, the cycle of numbing, finding our flow, the effect of creative projects, paying attention to our distractions, the plague of "hurry disease", the benefits of doing tasks more mindfully rather than busily, Patti's career path from getting a Master's degree to teaching English & traveling around the world to creating FIGJAM workshops for women (Fresh Inspiration Gives Joy and Meaning) to writing a book, and more!
