In this episode, I’m speaking with Mari Reisberg: therapist, performer, creativity coach, and host of the Sustaining Creativity Podcast. 


Mari and I talk about her journey as a very creative child, to the world of performing, and then onto her role supporting other creatives. We talk about rejection as a creative (something we all experience), creative self-care, and creating on your own terms. 


Words you’ll hear…


“Affirmations lead us to goals, they lead us to the changes we want to make in our life.”


“When we give our mind space to relax, answers show up.”


“Creativity is a present moment experience.”


“I think we forget how important mindfulness is to creativity.”
