The aim of developing a CREATIVE MIND is to awaken a creative spirit. The training and promotion of a creative personality and mindset are therefore the main focus here.
With the help of Dr. Carol Dweck’s program, the “growth-mindset” is awakened. Therefore, personality traits such as determination, error tolerance and the conviction that future problems can be solved are trained.
With the help of the concept of Embodiment, attributes such as openness to new things, mindfulness and the courage to take new paths are promoted. Embodiment emphasizes the interaction between body and psyche. Posture, movement and muscle tension have a significant influence on emotional and cognitive states such as thinking styles, judgement, attitudes and self-confidence.
Techniques such as asynchronous movements, meditation, Qigong and juggling are used here.
Qigong is a combination of meditation, breathing techniques, concentration and movement. In addition to strengthening physical fitness, Qigong leads to a calming of the mind, physical and mental relaxation and thus to increased attentiveness.
In the following Qigong tutorial, 18 exercises from the 1st Shibashi set are presented on the basis of 9 videos. Additionally, each video starts with a few thoughts on how the philosophy of Qigong can help to unfold one´s own creative potential.
