The Artist’s Journey: Pacify, Enrich, Magnify, Destroy

I studied at Skylake Lodge yesterday with one of my teachers  and friends Arawana Hayashi.

She offered her buddhist teacher’s framework for artists on four stages of creativity:

1. Pacify ~ create a calm hospitable mind/environment/sacred space that welcomes and invites creativity, muses, creative partnership….

2. Enrich ~ get it out, allow the flow, fill the page, play with colors, jam, play, improv, sketch, open the flow…

3. Magnify ~ amplify what has resonance, expand on juicy points, add shading and light, enter the tensions, deepen the drama…

4. Act (Destroy) ~ cut out what is not needed, boldly offer what is.
