Books by Amy Mindell

Lao Tse Press.

From her experience and knowledge of process oriented psychology and creativity, author, therapist, and artist Amy Mindell takes you on a journey to discover the hidden creativity and inspiration in your body, in material objects, in the environment, and even in your day-to-day work. Her book THE DREAMING SOURCE OF CREATIVITY, shows how dreaming and imagination are essential aspects of a fulfilling life.

Filled with stories, easy to follow exercises, and over 100 pictures, THE DREAMING SOURCE OF CREATIVITY offers simple and easy ways to creatively enjoy and work on yourself by sensing the “intentional field”, the dreaming source of creativity that is always present within and around you.

You discover how creativity arises from almost nothing and is hidden even in the most mundane parts of life. You will tap your deepest nature using art, music, puppets, movement, relationships and other amazing worlds. The creative methods in this book are also helpful for those therapists who would like to bring a creative and artistic dimension to their work. Process oriented psychology offers a unique, mind-expanding approach to creativity based upon dreams, body experiences, and overall life situations. Using the “intentional field” as the source of creativity is a new and unique perspective in art therapy, acting, and dance.
