Why is this important? First off, creativity transcends the boundaries between science and technology, art and business, and religion and spirituality, making it a bridge by which people from all different disciplines, outlooks, belief systems, and ways of being can learn from one another.
Second, people are happiest and most fulfilled with they find themselves in the space of creative flow.
Finally, creativity has the power to heal by re-establishing a felt sense of wholeness, meaning, and intrinsic worth. And when people feel whole, they operate more skillfully in the world, making decisions that enrich all our lives while serving the greater good.
