“[Harris] offers a diverse laundry list of mindful personal practices pointed toward introspection, exploration, and individual growth.” – Publishers Weekly
“99 Keys” is not nearly as intimidating as a long-form program like The Artist’s Way. I bought it and never got going partly because it was so structured and so long. On the other hand, I’m already using many of these keys and got some good reminders and new ways of seeing other ones.” Joanne Sprout
Creativity is not just painting or writing; it is stepping outside the way we normally think and looking at a situation from different angles. Author Melissa Harris reminds us that the many small acts we perform on a daily basis can be used to view our lives in a new way.
99 Keys to a Creative Life is divided into three sections for easy reference:
- 33 awareness keys (mental, emotional or physical): Awareness practices deepen our ability to know what accelerates our creativity. In this section we become highly aware of subtle things that can either stifle or propel us.
- 33 intuitive or heart-based keys: these help to keep us on the creative path. We “tune in” and make our channel to creativity stronger.
- 33 spiritual or soul-based keys: ways to apply spirituality or soul-based practices to our creative process. These keys also give the reader ideas on applying spiritual principles to enhance or improve our individual connection to Spirit.
