What Places or Activities Refill Your Well When You're Seeking Inspiration?
Reflection from the Community of Practitioners at The Resiliency Center:
Elizabeth Campbell – Hiking and yoga refill my bucket when I need
inspiration. I often find the answers I'm looking for when I give myself
space in those ways. I also love working with kids, seeing their joy and
hard work in play therapy inspires me daily.
Tracie Nichols - Nearly anywhere outdoors refills my inspiration
well. I also love lingering in small art museums. They're digestible.
Accessible. And the art feeds my visually inspired soul.
George – For little
burst of brain inspiration (and breaks), I love Etsy. It fascinates me
all the creative ways people use different mediums, materials, and color.
For ongoing inspiration, I love to play with new movement tools, toys, and
classes. And when I need inspiration at the end of a long day, I like to listen
to NPR's podcasts: On Being and Fresh Air.
Venart – Looking out at the ocean and listening to the waves, especially a
night under the full moon, the light glistening off the water as the waves roll
in. Watching a sunset slowly reveal itself and change, marveling at the colors
as they open and unfold in all directions. A walk in the woods. Attending a
live music event, especially jazz and blues with soulful singers and
spontaneous improvisation of sound – seeing people completely immersed in the
feeling of the music and breathing life into it.
