“The creative process shrivels in the absence of continual dialogue with the soul. And creativity is what makes life worth living.”
That is a quote by Jungian analyst and author Marion Woodman, on a topic also addressed by Julia Cameron in her classic book The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity.
“The heart of creativity is an experience of the mystical union… Those who speak in spiritual terms routinely refer to God as the creator but seldom see ‘creator’ as the literal term for ‘artist.’
“I am suggesting,” Cameron continues, “you take the term creator quite literally. You are seeking to forge a creative alliance, artist to artist, with the Great Creator.”
