Why Are You Here? You have Limitless Potential
YOU hold the key to unlocking YOUR creative genius!
This means unlocking the right side of your brain & having a tool you can use to turn off STRESS!
Take a moment and think about children, how creative and fearless are they? They love being creative. So what happens to us? Why do so many people feel they don't own a creative bone in their body?
From the earliest age our parents or kindergarten teacher gives us paper and crayons, clay and papier-mâché, we believe we are creative. We are in our element as creators. Then as we get a bit older and are taught it is 'not right to be wrong', we begin to become critical of our creative ability until finally, usually by between the age of 11 to 14, we begin to simply accept we are not talented.
So we go into adulthood not believing we have talent, we are not creative, but that is ok because there is no pressure from society to be so. Art is optional once we get to high school. So you just turn that part of yourself off. Like a switch, turn it off, forget about it, get on with other stuff.
But they are saying we are in an era where we need to be creative to survive in society
"Creativity is the greatest gift of human intelligence. The more complex the world becomes, the more creative we need to be to meet its challenges"
Sir Ken Robinson - Author of best selling book 'The Element'.
Over my years of teaching Right Brain Genius, and constantly googling right brain / left brain information, I have found some amazing teachers and learned it is our education system that fails to nourish our creativity. But it is our responsability to do something about it.
Many teachers who have done the Right Brain Genius course now try to teach more creatively (where the system allows). They understand that some children are naturally right brained (especially a lot of kids labellled with ADHD or Aspergers) They don’t understand the ourdated left brain teaching methods.
These kids are bored, restless, lost and will be left behind if the system can’t help them (and I don’t mean by giving them drugs to deal with their problem). It is not their problem nor their fault.
The Right side of your brain is the creative, intuitive, visual side of your brain. The vehicle we use to unlock the right side of your brain is drawing.
A lot of people say "Well I can't draw so I can't do that". The reason you can't draw is because no one ever taught you how. Believe me after 8 years of teaching Right Brain Genius, I know everyone can draw. So long as you can write your name, you can draw. And aparently so long as you can draw a circle and a straight line, you can write your name.
"All children are born artists, the problem is to remain an artist as we grow up"!

Activities that are pleasurable yet at the same time complex are good for the brain because they lead to the reduction of stress which is beneficial for the body and the brain. Learning how to draw is both pleasurable yet complex and Right Brain Genius has had profound impact on many peoples lives.

"It is predicted, in the future, our bodies will outlive our brains and disorders like Alzheimer’s and dementia will be the leading cause of death. They say to keep adult neurons communicating; and keep our brains young, we need to just keep learning".
"Our future belongs to a completely new kind of person with a very different kind of mind. Thanks to Globalization, Outsourcing, and Technology, many traditional white-collar jobs are either disappearing or being shipped overseas. The information age we created is giving way to a new world known as the 'Conceptual Age' and to have a cutting edge in society; we need to begin using the right mode of our brains".
Daniel Pink 'A whole new mind'
"An essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail" Sir Isaac Newton
“There is no doubt that creativity is the most important human resource of all. Without creativity, there would be no progress, and we would be forever repeating the same patterns” Edward De Bono
