The Soul of Creativity with Dawn Kotzer

Creativity and curiosity are bigger than just the arts. They’re bigger than hobbies. They’re vital parts of life, and the quality of our existence. Dawn Kotzer understands how creativity links into the realities of life better than almost anyone I know. She’s a coach with multiple backgrounds, including Kaizen-Muse (like me) and Martha Beck. She’s also an incredibly wise soul who always seems to have the right insight for the present moment.

This is a deep conversation, and I hope you’ll feel free to digest it in small chunks, if necessary. There’s a lot here—and there are handy links to a lot of good stuff below.

Soul is where we are most human, and it is home of imagination, which means that curiosity is always riding sidekick. Always. If we hamper our curiosity, we stifle our imagination, and that tends to, over time, sandblast our creative soul a little bit.
