May Week 1: Claiming Our Creativity
Overview And Objectives
The qualities we have been looking at: innocence and wonder are foundation qualities for creating competence in ourselves. This week we continue our journey of learning about personal qualities that lead to competence. Creativity is this month's subject and imagination is the quality we want to develop in ourselves.
We are not talking about competence in a particular task, like cutting carrots, although that matters, we are talking about a deeper kind of competence. This special competence is a base upon which can build a wholehearted and generous way of living in the world: one that serves others and is a joy to us.
