Interactive Workshop: Aromas as a Pathway to Creativity
See, smell, touch and taste in this interactive workshop. Experience for yourself the enchantment, inspiration and creativity of essential aromas. Mother Nature is an unrivaled expert when it comes to Creativity. Meet Dr. Paul Goddard, Clinical Psychologist in the creative atmosphere of the Soho Photo Gallery. Immerse yourself in a sensory experience. Come to better understand the power of your amazing sense of smell. Perhaps you remember the aroma of fresh baked bread or chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven. Learn about gifts of the earth that awaken creativity: savor herbal tea, experience essential oils, embrace aromatherapy techniques that many find indispensable to remain grounded and creative amidst the commotion of city life.
Which aromas energize? Increase focus? Ease stress? Arouse creativity? Mother Nature loves Creativity - she inspires us with so many sights, sounds, smells, flavors and sensations. Our ability to breathe and smell is profoundly evocative. Fragrance is a subtle but very powerful pathway to creativity. Even long ago, the geniuses knew about the power of fragrances. Leonardo da Vinci was said to be passionate about essential oils, and was famed for surrounding himself with perfumes. Even Shakespeare's father was a glover who was known to use extensive amounts of essential oils. Could this have been a contributing factor to the creation of 39 plays, 154 sonnets and countless poems?
Dr. Goddard moves beyond theory and invites you to directly experience the power of essential oils to inspire creativity, enhance motivation and ease toxic stress.
