About the Book
Creative Awakenings: Envisioning the life of your dreams through art, takes readers on a transformative, creative personal adventure. For everyone who has ever wanted to create a more rewarding life, fueled by creative intention, Creative Awakenings is a trailblazing road map, a trusted guide, and a tireless cheerleader.
Creative Awakenings follows the lives of 12 nationally known artists over the course of a year, such as Claudine Hellmuth, Lesley Riley, Jane and Thomas Wynn, to name a few. Each committed to engage with the EnVision Art of Intention™ process, created by artist, life coach and psychotherapist, Sheri Gaynor, for one month. During that month, the participating artists were asked to create artwork that expressed their truest intentions. The resulting essays and inspired art projects provide a creative spark to help readers rediscover a more expansive and fulfilling way to live, fueled by creative intention.
