4/2 Chi and Creativity: Vital Energy and Your Inner Artist

Posted by novoscene on April 2, 2008

As far back as we can remember there’s been a mystical aura around art and the people who create it. Artists and creative types have alway held a special place in our hearts for their free spirits, addictions to creativity and willingness to live so close to the poverty line in pursuit of their passions.

But Chi Kung practitioners Kaleo and Elise Ching have a different idea. They believe that we all possess that creative spark and use it all the time, from skipping down the street to singing our favorite song, however off key. In their book Chi and Creativity: Vital Energy and Your Inner Artist, the two draw on everything from acupressure and breathing techniques to Chi Kung movement and meditation to show how we can all harness our creative selves and be more artistic in our everyday lives-whether painting the next Mona Lisa or painting the garage. They’ll demonstrate exorcises from the book and sign copies tonight at Pegasus Books.
