Deep Creativity: Inside the Creative Mystery by Victor Shamas, Ph.D. US $18.95 plus $3 shipping (US only) Rather than just observe creativity in others, University of Arizona psychologist Dr. Victor Shamas decided to delve into the experience directly. Deep Creativity reveals the findings of his 30-year exploration, offering startling answers to basic questions: What is creativity? Where does it come from? How does it work? What is your creative potential? And how do you fulfill that potential? Deep Creativity turns fundamental assumptions about the creative process on their head, while offering fresh perspectives on the scientific method, fractals, Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, plate tectonics, mind and consciousness, hero myths, the life cycle, sleep and dreams, mothers’ intuition, the nature of wisdom, peak experiences, and even the Gospels. The creative experience is portrayed as a bold adventure filled with passion, turmoil, inspiration, sacrifice, sheer joy, self-transcendence, and unconditional love. Deep Creativity draws insights into the creative experience from a wide range of sources, including the Beatles, Einstein, Anaïs Nin, Rumi, William Blake, Lady Gaga, Benoit Mandelbrot, Maya Angelou, Joseph Campbell, the Romantic poets, Hindu scripture, classical composers, Zen masters, and quantum physicists. Integrating art, psychology, philosophy and mysticism, Deep Creativity offers a radical new view of both the creative process and the human condition.
