Rediscovering yourself: creative flow as a resource
Creative Flow as a Resource is an engaging and personally challenging 4-week course designed to serve as a window for exploring options for creativity and self-improvement in your day-to-day life. Participants meet once a week to learn new skills, create, discover and to share. Throughout the week participants are required to take a few hours just for themselves, away from usual stress, uncertainties, and routines.
Creativity is a Resource: and this course aims to create conditions in which you can find your own path to realize the plans and dreams you have, to nudge you towards what you really want, to refresh, to gain strength and to relieve you from daily stresses. Participants feel revitalized and learn many tools that can be used to continue their creative and personal journeys. It is possible, to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.
The course foundations are built upon research in positive psychology, creativity and cognitive science. The aim is to help you to find your passion and improve well-being.

‘Creative Flow as a Resource’ is a workshop series, and each workshop builds upon the one before. It is designed to take participants through a variety of stages of self-awareness and personal development using creative activities. Some of these activities are group based, and some are individual. There is also homework to bridge the days between the workshops and to emphasize the core concepts and values of creativity as a personal resource.
This means, that establishing creativity in your daily life is something that enhances your well-being and adds substantial meaning to your life. These are not our assumptions or ideas – we base our theory and our practice on concepts that are founded in scientific research.
The goal of the course is, ultimately, to develop your own personal version of the creative you and for you to be able to take what you learn and to apply it to your life in order to continue the growth and creative process long after the course is over.
As mentioned – there are so many activities! Some are strength building exercises, some will take you on your own personal ‘time traveling machine’, some discuss what might hold you back and explores those factors that you can use to bring you forward.
We write, we draw, we converse, we cut and paste and build.
This is the general idea of the course. Every time there are slightly different needs and resources available within the group. We develop the course with our general guidelines, but we maintain flexibility and an open-mind to adapt dynamically to the needs and desires of the current participants.
We would love to see you among the participants!
