I have worked a bit with Betty Edward's book "Drawing from the Right Side of the Brain". It is a great way for those who think they are not creative to start to open up to the type of perceptual awareness used by artists everyday. I was surprised to find out that the military used this book in their 20 year remote viewing program.
This interview was recorded by Jeffrey Mishlove with Lyn Buchanan, MA, who participated in the Army's remote viewing program based at Fort Meade, Maryland. He now teaches ways in which we can all develop these senses. The power of opening up our senses expands our intelligence. For highly creative people, this can be a validation of all they are naturally inclined to see. For those who haven't yet tapped their inner creativity, this can improve the quality of someone's life.
The Buddhist's 8-fold path is founded most significantly on it's first two pillars: Accurate Perception and Correct Expression. Accurate Perception is number one! Most of us see through a limited lens of our past experiences. Instead of drawing the tree in front of us, we draw a symbol of a tree. Learning to see what is actually in front of us when drawing, seems to allow us to open our awareness to all aspects of what is truly in front of us.
So check out the book, and check out the video. Give the exercises a try and see how your life improves.
