Awaken an amazing sense of new possibilities
In FREE introductory workshops this January/ February the Extraordinary Mind Project promises to set you on your way to tuning into the creativity mechanism of your brain more deliberately and strongly than adults usually can.

Over 3,500 Perthians have participated in the Extraordinary Mind Project and reconnected with a creative self that for many has not run wild and free since childhood.

Come and discover how you, too, can enjoy more freedom and confidence, faster and easier skills development, and a more interesting world of fresh perceptions and new insights.

Facilitator Jan Cross has taught the keys to harnessing the brain's potential for creativity and positive change for more than a decade. Her mission for the project is to help people find their creative side - especially those who feel they don't have one, and those who feel there is more to their creativity but can't seem to connect with it.

"Some had a closed-down, negative feeling about their creativity and a yearning for more of it in their lives. Others had resigned themselves to the thought that they just don't have any creative talents. It is my goal to help people access their creativity and showcase to themselves and others just what can be achieved. The results are outstanding. The project has helped more than 3500 people transform their artistic abilities in just a few hours, helping them move from drawing stick figures to creating accomplished expressions.."

In each session, Ms Cross teaches practical information about the mechanics of the brain and applies this in simple drawing exercises. "As young children, our brain is a 'clean slate', so to speak," she says. "But as we move through life our brain is wired to automatically and efficiently repeat what we already know. If we think we lack creativity, our thought processes endlessly repeat this perception. My mission is to help people change some ingrained hard-wiring and so re-connect with their creative self."

The result is breathtaking and proof that anyone can be creative. Extraordinary Mind Project participant Kerry Nunn says that the creative flow that followed her course enabled her to write and subsequently self- publish a book, since recommended by Curtin University. "Apart from being able to draw, I learnt about using flow to produce results in other areas," she says. "I also had the bonus that the depression which had dogged me for years, disappeared."

Early participants in the project, Jeremy Holton and Narelle Manser- Smith, are now professional, award-winning artists with works in public and private collections.

If you feel you are 'stuck' or at a standstill in some area of life and want to awaken an amazing sense of new possibilities, join the Extraordinary Mind Project. Expect a flow on of benefits in your life, such as better concentration at work, deep relaxation, more focus, less reactivity, and ongoing excitement!
