Creative Introspection

Embracing the self as creative energy incarnate


Creative Introspection is the use of creative energy for accessing personal insight at the quantum level of awareness. It doesn't matter what your creative passion is because  Creative Introspection is all about focusing creative energy itself, not the by-product of that energy.  It doesn't matter if you paint, sew, sculpt, dance, write or garden, anytime spent in the timeless aspect that creative energy offers feeds this introspective process.  

Creative Introspection is not art therapy.  It's not about interpreting drawings or paintings for clues from your unconscious mind. Creative Introspection is not concerned with your unconscious mind because the answers that come from that place are rooted in perception, and duality! Creative Introspection  bypasses this because it taps into our wholeness.  It accesses the quantum field of awareness rather than our field of limited perception.  Here duality falls away, division is non-existent and true realization replaces deduction.  

Plain and simple Creative Introspection is about using creative energy to make room for the dawning of  quantum awareness.  This is a mystical, individual and deeply personal experience.  It is expansive in ways one must experience to fully comprehend.  Quantum awareness/mysticism has its foundation in truth, which is whole and very different than fact finding or the weighing of evidence.  

Truth is not what we have been led to believe it is.  Real truth, unlike perception, has no division or separation in it.   Practicing Creative Introspection is not for the faint of heart. It is not for those that are determined to hold onto their old ideas and 'lessons learned'.  Creative Introspection invites and engages the quantum field of all that is. It is not concerned in the least with all that is not! One  experience of quantum awareness will forever change the way you perceive yourself and the world around you. This is no small thing.  This is personal transformation.


Through talks and workshops that accompany my art exhibits I primarily serve as a witness for the Creative Introspection process itself.  This work was not taught to me in a traditional sense.  It simply revealed itself to me over several decades as I committed myself to the larger questions of life.  As I became willing to look deeply into my own personal conditioning and beliefs I explored many traditions and modalities. Some resulted in counseling licenses and certifications in energy work, dream analysis and the like, however none of these held the essence of what I was in search of.  

I was looking 'out there' for the answers I sought. However, the revelations I needed were hidden deep beneath the countless answers we find 'out there' in the traditions, modalities, philosophies and conditioning we are raised with.  Only when I came to undo the bulk of everything I had ever learned or believed did I make room for the dawning of quantum awareness.  This kind of awareness lives in the present moment and arises as it is needed.  It is not found in education, religion, science, metaphysics or any other discipline.  I hope that simply sharing the concept of Creative Introspection contributes to the undoing of these for those truly desiring to live from their soul essence. Navigating life  from this level of awareness is profound.  It truly demonstrates the peace that passes all understanding...because we are no longer standing under any external authority or teaching. We are instead plugged into our wisdom and grounded in our wholeness. 


During a trip to Creede, Colorado I spent an afternoon creating stacks of rocks in the river behind our cabin.  This was a wonderful experience and very engaging.  As I walked away I knew the river would eventually tumble the stones and return them to ground where they belonged.  The same can be said for the years I stacked diplomas, licenses, certifications and philosophies.  Only when they tumbled to the ground would I be returned to the river of life where realization and personal experience thrive.  Below is a list of just some of these that I have been freed from.  Fun to have stacked up, but much more helpful to be free of.

A Disclaimer of sorts...

Not everyone shares the same passion for expanding conscious awareness.  We each do life very differently and that's ok! In fact, it's the way we are designed to work!  I know not all are called to an introspective life.  I also know not all are called to creativity the way I am.  But for those called to both, I share my use of creative energy beyond the making of 'things'.  When aimed in the direction of insight, creative energy can serve to open a powerful portal of revelatory experience and individual inner wisdom.  It doesn't matter what the creative interests are. Anytime one enters a creative space with the desire to understand the larger questions of life, their everyday experiences will begin to fill with the answers they seek.  This is what I have come to call Creative Introspection.  I share my experiences with it over the past thirty years,  where it continues to lead me, and ways it can make any creative journey more meaningful.
