Because You are Sensitive, It Leads You To Be Creative
Rachel Moore, LMFT
Many Sensitive’s are creative, but don’t consider themselves to be creative. We talk about the different ways that creativity shows up in our lives. There is a false belief that trauma is the origin of creativity, but Rachel asked Gabor Mate about this and his response to her dispels that myth. Sensitivity is what makes you creative; it is a function of your being. We talk about Julia Cameron and her book The Artist’s Way, and Elizabeth Gilbert’s book Big Magic and her podcast Magic Lessons. We also talk about Brene Brown and the origin of courage.
