Discover Your Creative Compass

Consider just how often you tell stories. On a daily basis, you express yourself to family and friends, as well as strangers via social media. What should be a source of bliss — creativity — can also generate confusion and doubt, even paralysis. That’s because it matters what stories you tell and how you tell them.

In this new course, Dan Millman and Sierra Prasada connect you with your inner storyteller. Whether you’re a writer, artist, or innovator, you’ll find greater creative and personal fulfillment thanks to their groundbreaking approach.

Dan and Sierra offer guidance and encouragement to help you push through common blocks to writing or any form of creativity. They demystify the process without dispelling the magic. The hard-won truths they articulate, and the innovative exercises they present, will light your way and enrich your practice.

It is important to make one’s life a dance or a work of art. To be fluid enough to be silent as a still lake, then as gregarious as a party host, then as compassionate as a mother, then as creative as a painter. In short, your life can be a multidime

The #1 Way to Succeed: Choose to Create!

Create! When given a choice – and we always are – opt for creating. I love that we have free choice in this world AND choosing out of the realm of creating, to me, is the only place to choose from. Imagine a world where everyone is saying, in essence, “I can’t wait to see what I will create next.” That is the world I want to create and inspire others to live in with me. In a collective sense, that is the world I know is possible to be in and I deeply feel that we are moving full… Read more.

Creating your life on your terms is really about allowing for grace through your next transition.

Moments: The Notes in Your Heart’s Song

Like notes in a song, moments lead us into the chorus of our life…the chorus of a song is the part that we all sing along to. The part we all remember! So, each moment is strung together to create a larger time period in our life and these larger time periods become our life… but the moments are the notes that create the song and the song is our life. It is the beautiful moments that create a beautiful life. A life so beautiful others sing along with it and are inspired to find the song of their heart!… Read more.

Merry Christmas!

On this beautiful Christmas Eve, I’d like to share a small gift with you. This is my very favorite Christmas carol, Silent Night. This version was recorded by my daughter, Carly, a few years ago on her holiday CD. I’m happy to share it with you, in the hopes that it brings the spirit of Christmas into your home this Christmas Eve. Turn down the lights, light a candle, turn up your speakers, close your eyes and just listen. Soak it in. I hope it touches your heart as you have touched mine. Our Christmas wish for you…. May you… Read more.

How to Open Possibility Through Creativity

When I was 25 I entertained on a cruise ship. People would embark stressed, but gradually begin to relax, laugh, be quiet, be rowdy, and revive romance. Wow! Two weeks later, as they disembarked, I’d hear them say “Well, that was fun, but we have to get back to the real world.” – as if being happy, engaged, and heartfelt was reserved for an “unreal” world! To really understand this, I needed to know more so, at 45, I went to university. What an amazing experience. Three Masters degrees later, my new knowledge began to blend with my life experience… Read more.

Principles for Making Your Life a Creative Process

Living can be difficult sometimes, but being alive is wonderful, exciting and full of possibility. The dissonance between these aspects of “life” can be confusing and seem unresolvable. Why is that? How is it that quality of experience can diminish quality of life? Why do some people feel they are not worthy – they make no difference, no contribution, create no benefit? Sadly, some believe they should not be alive at all, a tragedy that besets far too many. Recently a good friend who is an architect asked, “How do I get people excited about what I do?” What a question to… Read more.

6 Ideas to Create Change

Take care of yourself. Continue to persevere: do not allow doubt to creep across your goals. Always make sure to take some time every day to rest. That time should be just for you to keep stress away. If you don’t take really good care of yourself, you may not succeed as highly as you could have. Continue looking at the night sky and wonder about all the many new things yet to be discovered. The answer is clear. There is nothing more certain in my mind than we are all members of the family of Man. We all exist… Read more.

How To Be A Spark Of Inspiration For Others

Creating and inventing something are a reflection of who you are – a spark of inspiration in action for others. It helps you change the world for the better and keep a positive focus on the future. It is your creativity that makes you great – and it is the foundation that drives your innovator spirit and expands your vision. Recognize that when you are told “you are a blessing in my life”, it is not only a reward but it validates your expertise and dedication to color the lives of others. Understand that innovation can play a significant role… Read more.

Your Creative Compass

I am convinced that our hearts are made to heal. Instead of carrying around habitual suffering, our hearts can be cleaned of the hurt that we have lived through. Not only does this free us up to be more full of life, but the whole process can be enjoyable when we use artistic expression as our means of healing. My musical journey has been a simple practice that changes old pain into compassion and bliss. For me, songwriting has been a discipline that I call cardio spelunking. It is a deep dark adventure to retrieve bright treasure, and it would… Read more.

Trust, Leap, Surrender

Perhaps the most important principles I’ve learned through the years are the ones that inextricably link life and creativity, the ones that keep me open to the infinite, that help me surrender to the unknowable, that push me beyond the bounds of what I can imagine. I’ve also learned to be open to the synchronistic and the miraculous, to the numinous and the unseen. I’ve learned that not everything plays out as I expect. I’ve learned to trust my intuition above all else…even when that intuition doesn’t appear to make sense. If I were a tarot card, I’d be The… Read more.
