How do you encourage a creative mindset?

Creativity is more than ideas and action. It is also a state of being – of moving through life with a sense of purpose and fluidity. Explore this state of creative awareness, self-awareness and reality at this meditative, interactive event with Dr Nadine Cameron and musician SnowBorne (David Rosa). In this guided meditation, surrender to the breath and the unique physical and sensory experiences that can occur when music, personal memories and spoken word combine.

Presented by Sydney Opera House
