For more information on the workshop, including tickets, follow this link - https://www.rachelsermanni.com/workshop‘Consider Everything an Experiment’In this episode I get talking about a favourite hand book of mine, written by Chogyam Trungpa, interpreting the ‘Slogans of Atisha’ which are a bunch of succinct one or two liners that are, in some way, supposed to boil the magic of Buddhism and Buddhist practice down to something concise. I look at what ‘Experimenting’ looks like for creative people compared to what it might look like for a professional Scientist. I talk about ‘Not Knowing’ and why that is pretty darn important in the process of writing a song, or making anything at all.In this series I circumambulate (walk around/talk around) the magic of Creativity using the template of 10 Rules that were written by a fascinating woman called Sister Corita Kent. In each episode I interpret and elaborate on one or two of these rules according to my own life experience.Hopefully this accumulation of thoughts expressed gives the listener some inspiration & foundational knowledge on how to Cultivate a Creative Life. For more info on Sister Corita Kent & how to help save her old art studio & legacy: https://www.corita.org/
