Do you have a great creative living books to recommend to me?

    Hi Jaimie, I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed this video about your current reading adventures. I too am reading a wonderful book entitled The Call To Create celebrating acts of imagination by Linda Schierse Leonard. It speaks to my inner creative soul in ways that are unique. The author is a Jungian analyst and teacher. She helps the reader see what motivates imagination through archetypes. It’s fascinating reading.

    Hi Jamie. What a pleasant way to spend 15 minutes – you presented each book with such ‘flow and soul’!. In fact, I ended up buying two of the books (so it was quite a costly exercise too!). I went for Shooting with Soul because I am on a journey to improve my photography and infuse it with a little magic. Also, Flow Formula. Again, I’m currently fascinated by the concept and am working on using intuition more in my life. I love the quote by Mihaly Csikzentmihalyi – “flow is the state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter”. I already own Flora’s book, thank goodness or would have wanted to buy that too. In fact, I’m actually in Flora’s book – check me out ‘flocking’ in a field in Yorkshire on p86 – pink jumper, jeans and flowery apron! funnily enough I’m wearing that painting jumper today!

    This is one of my favorite features on your creative living TV! You do such a great job telling us about the books and then tying in the common threads of them all. “The grand adventure” it is!
    You are in for lots of inspiration just with Natalie Goldberg’s and May Sarton’s books. Keep going with them. . . .they are golden! I have a whole collection of both author’s on my creative living shelf.
    I have picked up Flora’s book a couple of times and will have to get it soon, upon your recommendation. And I’m heading to listen to Sunny’s podcast now.
    Thanks, Jamie! I was so excited to listen when I read your newsletter today and saw this as a feature!

    Jamie, you have a special gift when it comes to talking about the things in your life about which you are passionate. Your creative living books discussion made me want to read ALL of the books. Thank you, especially, for introducing me to May Sarton. I am so happy to learn about her and cannot wait to delve into her work. Thank you!
