Parallel Mind The Art of Creativity

Aliyah Marr draws from her experience as a teacher, visual artist, poet, graphic designer, and art director to demonstrate how you can change your body, your profession, your relationship, and your life just by changing your thoughts.

A powerful reference guide for artists, educators, psychologists, entrepreneurs, scientists, and for those who have an interest in a practical form of self-development.

Packed with practical examples and exercises from every medium: visual art, theater, music, video, poetry, scriptwriting, and dance, this book shows you how to use art to express, and then clarify thoughts and emotions to create whatever you want.


Life Changing
“This book is about the life-changing power of the creative spirit. As Aliyah shows, we all have deep reserves of creativity that we can draw upon to transform not only the way we interact with the world around us but also the very thoughts and emotions that determine our reality.

Aliyah Marr’s ideas are provocative, even challenging, but she presents them in vivid, accessible arguments supported by an eclectic assortment of quotations from philosophers, artists, scientists, and other famous figures. Parallel Mind contains the rare gift of a new, necessary angle on contemporary life.”

More Than Technique
By Steve Kaye (Placentia, CA)

This book has a beautiful voice. It is encouraging, gentle, and kind. It speaks to you like a good friend.

The book is about more than creativity. It’s about opening your mind to become the creative person that exists in each of us. So, instead of providing a catalog of quick techniques, this book goes deeper into the heart of creativity. It goes into the fundamental mindset that drives creativity. Once you master this, then you can use the tools like an artist.

And yes, the book also provides techniques. But the real value is in the profound wisdom about how people unfold into being creative.

I found this to be one of those rare books that deserve to be kept and cherished.

I strongly recommend this book. It belongs in any personal library.
