Creative Introspection

Embracing the self as creative energy incarnate

Creative Introspection is the use of creative energy for personal insight. Plain and simple it is about making room for awareness.  It not for the faint of heart. It is not for those that are determined to hold onto their old ideas and 'lessons learned'.  

Creative energy is alive and most of all it is PRESENT!  Used as an introspective tool it will meet you exactly where you are and reveal and expose aspects of self, society and beyond without restraint.  It will inform unconditionally and bring your deepest truths to the surface layer by layer. 

Creative introspection is not 'art therapy'.  In fact it has nothing to do with art at all. Creative Introspection refers to understanding of ourselves as creative energy incarnate! The use of creative energy for the purpose of exploring the very meaning of life....beyond everything we have ever been taught or told.  Creative Introspection reveals YOUR answers, born from within YOUR very being... and NO ONE has those answers but YOU!  

Toward this purpose I share how I came to engage this remarkable energy for insight and understanding. I offer stories from my own experiences. These center around the larger questions of life and deeply personal explorations. This sharing is primarily suited to those who have found little solace in the institutional teachings of science, education and religion. This is soul work.

Through my sharing and interaction with those interested in exploring this for themselves I primarily serve as a witness for the Creative Introspection process itself.  This work was not taught to me in a traditional sense.  It simply revealed itself to me over several decades as I committed myself to the larger questions of life.  As I became willing to look deeply into my own personal conditioning and beliefs I explored many traditions and modalities. Some resulted in counseling licenses and certifications in energy work, dream analysis and the like, however none of these held the essence of what I was in search of.  

I was looking 'out there' for the answers I sought. However, the revelations I needed were hidden deep beneath the countless answers we find 'out there' in the traditions, modalities, philosophies and conditioning we are raised with.  Only when I came to undo the bulk of everything I had ever learned or believed did I make room for awareness.  Awareness lives in the present moment and arises as it is needed.  It is not found in education, religion, science, metaphysics or any other discipline.  I hope that simply sharing the concept of Creative Introspection contributes to the undoing of these for those truly seeking the realization of personal awareness; the way of true knowing.


During a trip to Creede, Colorado I spent an afternoon creating stacks of rocks in the river behind our cabin.  This was a wonderful experience and very engaging.  As I walked away I knew the river would eventually tumble the stones and return them to ground where they belonged.  The same can be said for the years I stacked diplomas, licenses, certifications and philosophies.  Only when they tumbled to the ground would I be returned to the river of life where realization and personal experience thrive.  Below is a list of just some of these that I have been freed from.  Fun to have stacked up but much more helpful to be free of.
