WILDHORSE CREATIVE TALKS is a series of brief audio clips to help kickstart your creative energy. It might be a poetry recitation, a curious little story, a short clip of a conversation with an artist, writer or other creative, or some other soundbite that plays with the imagination and ignites the mind.
Storytelling is the mother of poetry. It's where poetry originated. One of the marks of a true poem or story is its ability to surprise. We've all but lost our connection to the storytelling circle and without that connection (especially as we age) many of us lose that ability to be surprised by life.
Get connected and surprised for a spell here at CREATIVE TALKS .
More on the Holistic Healing+Creative Writing Connection
Nature is central to all my creative work, and my creative writing is strengthened by drawing upon all things "natural"(by "natural" I mean whatever is instinctively healthy to me): taking a walk in the woods, practicing tai chi, helping a friend, eating organic locally grown foods, getting a massage, using herbs or supplements to treat various health problems - I see all these activities as natural therapy.
I was first exposed to alternative medicine and health food stores in the 1970s, by my sister, and I took to it naturally. Not a few people thought I was a little kooky back then, with my stinging nettle teas, apple cider vinegar hair rinses and mega-doses of Vitamin C. But my intuitive self knew it was right for me. Since then I have tackled numerous health conditions successfully - some of them life-threatening - with alternative therapies (you can read about this on my FREE WORDS page or Greene Words Blog).
I've come to understand that the intuitive nature of alternative healing and the ideas therein were not taught to me but rather bred deep in my bones. In other words, I came out of the womb with a belief system already encoded in my cells much the same way as we are genetically encoded to have green eyes, curly hair or long fingers.
Over the decades I have researched extensively on hundreds of topics in the field (both for personal and professional reasons) and have published dozen of articles on human, animal and environmental health issues. (You can read some of these articles HERE).
I've worked with authors, executives, language learners, students, entrepreneurs and many other professionals in various areas including book writing, ESL, public speaking and sports. I've also coached numerous individuals using a creative holistic approach to help improve how they express themselves, interact with others or learn something new.
