“Zen and The Art of Making a Morris Chair: Awaken Your Creative Potential”
Join Randy Gafner, author of “Zen and the Art of Making a Morris Chair”, as he guides you through his experience of taking an idea and getting it published as a best-selling book (print, audio, & e-book).
Start – Journey – Completion
Randy will highlight the process used for the print version of his book, concept-to-completion, in 3 months. The book writing process starts with creating your Ideal Reader, a counter-intuitive developmental process of narrowly defining your audience. Upon completion, attendees will leave with an outline of their Ideal Reader profile, which is an essential part of the book-writing process.
How To Create Within The Simulation We Call Reality
Ramsey Mourad is the Creator of Infinity Compass, a methodology for creating in alignment, integrity, and ease. The alignment and integrity are with one’s self. The feeling and experience of ease is a result of this alignment. The methodology begins with an orientation to one’s infinite capacity for creation, and a recognition of how we as individual expressions of that capacity are constantly creating on multiple levels of our experience. From this orientation we begin to recognize how the events and circumstances of our lives are not only not random, but actually an expression of that vast, creative capacity; one that far exceeds even our ability to comprehend on a conscious level. Ramsey has experienced challenges, failures, successes and all kinds of other stuff. He presents, teaches, writes and participates with others whenever he can.
