Creativity Check-In: New year, new tools

  Happy New Year, Creatives! In true fashion, my new year came in with a celebratory bang, and I hope yours did as well. After spending the day reflecting on the previous year, I started looking forward. And that’s when I couldn’t look past the posts about resolutions, and then the posts about selecting your word of the year, and then the posts about planners, goals, and financial planning rolled in. GAH! It was only the …

#MTAdvocacy: A guest post from Dr. Dena Register

  Happy 2016, Creatives! With each new year, I find myself really REALLY looking forward to reading the perspectives MT bloggers and social media guru’s share about #MTAdvocacy.

Creativity Check-In: Ebb and Flow

  Ebbing and flowing, and ebbing and flowing in the great sea of creativity. I can picture myself rising and falling with the movement of the ocean…. Such a lovely day dream, memory from my childhood, and a hope for a vacation (one day…). Except it’s not a real ocean, it’s my philosophical manifestation of creativity.  I have a confession – I am my most creative self when the sea is “stormy”. I don’t mean “when …

Creativity Check-In: Breaking It Down

Hi, Creatives! As part of our Contributor Spotlight Series, I had the opportunity to interview Rachel Rambach, MM, MT-BC owner of Listen & Learn Music, and host of Guitars and Granola Bars. It was a great conversation, but she said something right out of the gate that has been floating around in my mind since our interview.     This clear reminder of stepwise motion seems like the perfect way to prevent that sense of overwhelm …

She, along with all of The Marketplace’s other contributors, had so much to say about creativity and working with her population: incarcerated teens. During the beginning of our interview, I asked her about her creative process. She stated, so clearly, that her clinical experience and setting has allowed her to freely …
