I interviewed Anne Paris, author of Standing at Water's Edge: Moving Past Fear, Blocks, and Pitfalls to Discover the Power of Creative Immersion, for my membership program a couple of years ago.
To give you a taste of what my members receive, I would like to share this interview with you.
Anne and I discussed creative immersion and the importance of connecting through relationships to facilitate creativity. In particular:
- Defining creative immersion and how artists move in and out of this state.
- The 3 different types of relationships it is important for artists to have.
- The power of connection and how it brings energy to our lives and work.
- How self-sufficiency, independence and autonomy disrupt our natural social being.
