                          The second practice of the 4 C’s is Creativity.  Creativity, like Centeredness, it is about connecting to your hidden wholeness, but this time through your creative voice - thinking outside the box and finding meaningful new ideas and ways of being.  Think of yourself as an artist and your life as a work of art.  Participate in different types of creative expressions, such as art, music, writing, etc. 

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

                                        ~ Mary Oliver, New and Selected Poems
