I love witnessing discovery!
The best part of Creativity Tribe is the work I do with Creatives who find their way into the projects I offer. Sometimes it happens in a coaching session or on one of the Party Line calls, but most recently I have been connecting during preparation for the Journey of the Inner Wanna Be project.
A peek into the project so far…
Below you will find a video. Before you watch it, I want to share with you the process that went into making it. The individuals you will see are folks from my hometown. I consider them (and many others) my local Creativity Tribe. Some are long-time friends, some new; some are even family. All are courageously sharing with you and the world little glimpses into their inner world.
In the video you will see handmade signs much like the ones I held up in my video from yesterday’s creative activity kick-off post. What you don’t see in the video is the conversation that took place as the signs were being put together and after the video was complete. Imagine a table at a cafe filled with people sharing fond memories of wishes gently tucked aside or screw ball ideas about how life might be lived paired with a true desire to throw caution to the wind and be that wild character they think they should only dream about. Imagine two loved ones revealing to one another aspects of their personality that they had never thought of sharing before and planting the seeds of conversation that supports one another’s deepest becoming.
Loss for words…
I tell you, I love to write, but moments like the ones I have had in just these beginning explorations of the Journey of the Inner Wanna Be have left me searching for more accurate ways to explain them. The best I can do is to encourage you to experience what I did for yourself. Tell your friends and family about this project. Feel free to say you heard about it from a lady on the internet who is a bit unorthodox, who is doing something (as my father says) that is a bit far fetched. Then invite them to “go there” with you.
What if you could be anything? What if you could name the kind of life you would lead if there were no rules? What would you call that life role? What archetype would you explore? No holds barred.
Have them make signs or even index cards to share with you. Video tape them or just talk about them. Who knows what discoveries you will witness!
If you do decide to make a video, please feel free to share it on our Inner Wanna Be page. The more the merrier!
Want more creative activities to inspire your Inner Wanna Be? I will be updating the IWB Activities and Prompts page as the journey plays out. Feel free to explore all or just the ones that call to you.
