The Pathway to Flow

The New Science of Harnessing Creativity to Heal and Unwind the Body & Mind




A new scientific 7-step process for unlocking your creativity at will and accessing the benefits of mindfulness without meditation

Improve your calm, focus and sense of purpose by harnessing the everyday power of creativity.

What if everything you've been taught about being an artist was wrong? If you've ever experienced the blissful feeling of being fully immersed in a project, of ideas come to you naturally, or of getting lost in thought when cooking, playing music, or dancing, then you've accessed the flow state. Often we stumble into it, but what if you could access and unlock the healing properties of the flow state whenever you need it?

For everyone who has ever struggled with writer's block this may sound too good to be true, but Dr. Julia F. Christensen, neuroscientist and former ballerina, taps into cutting-edge science, research and case studies of everyday artists to show that the story we've been taught about creativity is wrong. Using ancient solutions to solve modern problems, Pathway to Flow will show you that all of us are artists, teaching you how to harness the flow state at will through seven simple steps and build a routine that will help you be more calm, focused and creative.

Praise for The Pathway to Flow

Fascinating, engaging, fun, astonishing and absolutely delightful! I enjoyed every minute of this fabulous book. I learned a lot, both about the science of flow and its relation to the arts, but also about writing well.

Professor Joe Devlin, former head of Experimental Psychology at UCL

Wow, I love this book! - the integration of neuroscience, creativity and play; the bringing together of how our brains work and why we need play in order to heal and live.
