Creativity and flow states are an important part of how we find meaning and purpose. In a time where new models for monetizing creative work are rapidly emerging, more and more people are looking to explore how they can align their work life with their personal calling. But pursuing the creative life, either part-time or full-time, can often be emotionally and logistically challenging.
In this salon with Scott Barry Kaufman—who has written books on both creativity and self-actualization—we’ll dive into the minds of artists and writers, the paradoxes of the creative process, and how surmounting the fear of rejection is necessary for flourishing.
