An Invitation to Creativity

From Inspiration to Transformation

The Transformative Power of Shame by Dr Joseph Burgo

I

am very pleased to include in this spring issue an attractive new edition of the Findhorn Classic Encounters With Nature Spirits by R Ogilvie Crombie. It’s an enjoyable account of a solitary mystic’s encounter with a faun and with the great god Pan in the everyday streets and gardens of Edinburgh. Roc, as he was known, had been studying the esoteric for a long time, but these crucial lifetransforming meetings did not take place until he was in his sixties. It must be a blessing to have these moments “when the veil parts” and you glimpse a reality that is completely different from the everyday. Maybe it doesn’t dispel all possible doubts regarding an esoteric reality– I think I have written before that we might have to accept doubt as part of the human condition – but these moments are precious and I think it’s our duty where possible to tell people about them and encourage them on their paths, whenever we are blessed enough to have these experiences. We should be on that path because it’s the right thing to do. Because it’s a path of love, kindness and generosity; because we are working with the universe and its unquestionable “will to good”. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to glimpse the supernatural

or even to witness a miracle, but that has to be treated as a bonus, and as a rare gift. Please also bear in mind that you can sometimes only recognize the miraculous in retrospect, after the event. That’s why books like these are so important. They too are gifts from people who have done the hard work, who have a constructive lesson to pass on, or who might even have a miracle to tell us about. We should cherish them, read them slowly and absorb every last drop of energy from them. Make them special, make life itself special. I have so many books and other materials to look through, and I get blasé all the time. There are books that I pick up with almost unbearable excitement, and which fifteen minutes later are just part of a stack on my shelves. I try not to take anything for granted but that takes constant effort. Yet it’s something we should be striving to do every minute of the day. The IKEA adverts on television have as their catchphrase “The Wonderful Everyday”. I think that their intentions are ultimately different, but they have a point, that greyness and predictability have to be transcended consciously and even mindfully in every moment. Even though there are also times when I would like the Everyday to be some kind of distant memory! I do think that all the books that follow are incredibly valuable, but there’s another one I would like to highlight – Conscious Creativity by Philippa Stanton. It’s a book that’s saturated with joy and colour. It’s full of techniques, tips, stories and wonderful images that can inspire us to be creative and take joy in our surroundings. Look around you and remember those items, those books, pictures, films, meals that inspired you once and you then moved on from – they can inspire you again. Remember those little moments when you said to yourself “Now I can change…now I can do that daring thing that I know will make me happy… now that risk doesn’t look quite so scary”. I was at an exhibition in London recently devoted to the Italian architect Renzo Piano, who designed the Pompidou Centre in Paris and the

BOOK REVIEWS — Card Decks KILLER BY GARY FULLER THE INVISIBLE

‘Don’t just wait for the muse to visit.’ Shard in London. Being an architect must be thrilling: you are part builder, part poet and part alchemist. In the film shown there he says with passion, “To be creative, you have to decide to be creative”. That’s it. Don’t just wait for the muse to visit, or for the stars to be properly aligned in the heavens. Do it now, and transform that everyday moment. It doesn’t matter if you think life has passed you by; I don’t think that the universe could care less how old you might be! But just don’t “settle”, and don’t give up on the adventure. In the end, creativity and spirituality are so closely related as to at times be one and the same thing. Keep your spirit vibrant and look for inspiration. And also cherish these gifts that other brave and diligent souls have passed on to us, because there are lessons they can teach that might otherwise have been too difficult for us to learn on our own. Finally, keep in mind that we are all in this together!

CONSCIOUS CREATIVITY by Philippa Stanton

This is a delightful inspiration to creativity, full of clever and witty photographs, which are laden with vivid colour. The author is a professional photographer with 400,000 Instagram followers, whose work has been used by Green and Black’s chocolate and the travel company Tui. Chapter headings include “What Sort of Creative Are You?”, “Texture and Wabi Sabi” and “Atmosphere and Nothing”. The chapters are full of guidance and personal stories, with exercises at the end. And everywhere there are striking photographs of the author’s own work or of amazing scenes she has caught on camera. Whether you have lost your mojo or need some fresh ideas, this portable guide will get you back on your creative track. 160pp, 210 x 162 mm, Paperback, 2018, RRP £14.99

ATMOSPHERIC FLOWERS IN WATERCOLOUR BY JEAN HAINES

THE HANDBOOK FOR HIGHLY SENSITIVE PEOPLE by Mel Collins

For now I want to share how I first fell in love with flowers, long before I even started painting them. As a child I lived with my grandparents. One of the first things my Grandfather told me was that there were fairies at the foot of their garden. He told me I should never pick a flower, because I might disturb them. Crayons were placed in my child-sized hands and I played with colour as soon as I was able. I am thankful, because this is where my love of art began. All the gorgeous flowers in my Grandfather’s garden were soon my favourite subjects. I learned about their colour, form, and about each special season when they would begin to appear. Over time I have found that my life has been like seasons: my childhood and youth as the springtime of my life, followed by the beautiful summer as I grew, married and had children of my own. I would like to think I am now in the autumn rather than the winter of my lifetime – but oh, how much I have learned along the way. In all of my international watercolour workshops I am asked how to paint flowers. Before you can paint them as a subject, I believe you have to absorb information about

Although it was an almost unknown term a few years ago, narcissistic abuse now seems to be reaching epidemic proportions. Not that it is anything new, rather it is at last being recognised and understood. The author’s message, that you can thrive and not just survive, comes from her own intense experiences. She quotes scientific research which shows that trauma can cause the condition, as well as faulty maternal care, and it is also a condition that can be inherited from traumatised parents, such as holocaust survivors. It is not easy to recognise narcissism in a partner, or to recognise oneself as someone who can attract such a partner, especially when deeply embroiled in an abusive and toxic relationship. Part Two of this book contains exercises to get to the root of pain and start to release the trauma to gain inner freedom. 272pp, 215 x 136 mm, Paperback, 2018, RRP £10.99

SUPERCOACH by Michael Neill

From the writer and teacher that Paul McKenna calls “the finest success coach in the world today” comes a tenth anniversary edition of Supercoach, with revised and updated content. Many of us believe in a spiritual approach to life, but most of us still need practical lessons on day-to-day “living”. In this respect Michael is one of the best – his book is full of practical exercises and he is direct and to-the-point – but he is also a compassionate and wise teacher. There are also many stories and lists. The book is easy to read and understand – it’s an ideal jump-start for getting your life back underway. 256pp, 215 x 134 mm, Paperback, 2018, RRP £12.99

— BOOK REVIEWS SHAME BY DR JOSEPHPsychology BURGO YOU CAN THRIVE AFTER NARCISSISTIC ABUSE by Melanie Tonia Evans

Paying homage to the esoteric seekers of the nineteenth century, this book dives deep into the roots of spiritual wish fulfilment, or positive thinking, and strives to show what really works and what doesn’t to impact reality. Horowitz decisively begins this book by declaring mind metaphysics works and then takes the reader on a journey to demonstrate and explain how we each possess a creative agency to determine and reshape our lives. Even if you come to this book with scepticism you will leave it with a deeper understanding of the power positive thinking has had through history and can have on the personal level. This is a truly fascinating read with potential to help you reap incredibly positive results in your own life.

Here an experienced psychotherapeutic counsellor looks at the qualities and challenges of being highly sensitive.

This guide offers help to reconnect with the authentic self and get needs met by providing strategies and ways of self-protection. The desired outcomes from following this guide are inner harmony and physical, emotional and mental balance, states which can be hard to achieve for anyone, especially those who are highly sensitive. 208pp, 197 x 127 mm, Paperback, 2019, RRP £9.99

THIS IS FOR YOU by Ellen M Bard

Creating more than just art “Learn from nature; absorbing as much information as possible until you find yourself breathing life into your art.” At the beginning of each new book that I write, I try to explain to the reader why I am writing and what they can expect from the following pages. You may believe you have purchased a book that will help you paint flowers in a loose style. While that is true, I am hoping that you gain far more from the chapters to come. I want to take you on a journey that involves using watercolour materials to create beautiful paintings. I also want to share with you the joy I feel when painting flowers and how doing so has improved my life. More importantly, I want you to discover your true artist’s soul. I hope to pull out of you the very best floral artist you can be; so that you surprise yourself not only with your art but by the peaceful way you feel when you have finished painting floral work. I want you to yearn to paint each day, every time you see a flower, a plant, or even an insect, as we are looking at all these fascinating subjects within this book.

The latest book from the author of the bestseller Paint Yourself Calm. Likewise this is a large format full colour hardback and as such it’s excellent value. Jean is a skillful teacher and this is an ideal text for both beginners and experienced painters to learn from. Of course it’s primarily a book about painting skills, but the author always brings self-fulfillment into the mix. It’s full of practical tips and exercises but the author is also mindful of the calming aspects of art. Ultimately there’s little that can be more therapeutic than paining bright sunflowers, roses and bluebells.
