Creative Immersion and the Value of Connection

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.
