Your questions will be answered in the context of dozens of experiments to consider the connection between mindfulness and creativity.

Langer presents a new look at the profound effect of creativity upon one’s health and happiness and examines the importance of creativity in one’s everyday life.

She demonstrates that it is not a gift that only some special few are born with but, in fact, is a fundamental aspect of everyone’s makeup.

All of us can express our creative impulses — authentically and uniquely. In the process, we enhance our health, well-being and quality of life.

Your questions will be answered in the context of dozens of experiments to consider the connection between mindfulness and creativity.

She also demonstrates how exactly we under-appreciate our value and creativity, and challenges and inspires us with an enthusiasm for our life, our creativity and the world around us.
