Mastering the Creativity Mindset

A six-week workshop with Martha Beck
∙ NEXT CLASS 2022 ∙

What is Practical Wayfinding?

Practical Wayfinding is a series of workshops created by Martha Beck to teach skills for navigating the tumultuous changes of our time. Beginning in the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic, Martha now offers the course—with all-new content—once a year.

Continuous change is our “new normal,” and every day brings unprecedented challenges and opportunities.

In Practical Wayfinding 2021, Martha taught “the Creativity Mindset.” This is a skillset that allows you to imagine and then generate a life that is perfect for you. Even the most unsettling changes offer huge advantages to those who can use the Creativity Mindset.

Note: The Creativity Mindset was the topic of the 2021 Practical Wayfinding course. Sign up below to be the first to know what Martha will be teaching in 2022!

The Creativity Mindset

Being creative doesn’t have to mean macrame and scrapbooking! You don’t have to be an artist or a genius to be creative; we all have this capacity. For Martha, creativity is simply the process of making anything that has never existed before. You’re already doing that every day, though you may not know it.

The Creativity Mindset is a mode that you can learn to “switch on” in order to design, create, and launch the life that is perfect for YOU.

In Practical Wayfinding, you will learn:

  • how to live so that new worlds open to you every day
  • how to access your own Creativity Mindset and get comfortable staying there

With concrete practices and techniques you can use far beyond the workshop itself, this course will teach you to invent a life that’s more original, more abundant, and more YOU than anything you’ve been able to imagine before.

There are more opportunities for designing a life right now than I’ve ever seen. But without a Creativity Mindset, these opportunities are completely invisible.”

Why should I sign up for Practical Wayfinding?

Practical Wayfinding is all about learning to thrive in a world that’s churning with constant change.

Instead of merely adapting to changing circumstances, Practical Wayfinding will teach you to invent a new kind of life, one that no one else could live. In this new life, you will use change as the raw material for your own personal transformation.

This program recognizes that life isn’t going “back to normal”—not as it was before. You’ll learn to embrace your new reality instead of fearing it.

Waves of change can be exhilarating, Martha teaches, for those who know how to surf.

The gift of invisible opportunities

 

In a society as fractured as ours, most people focus on the negatives: what is broken, what is gone. But in Practical Wayfinding, we know that at the moment something breaks, something new is always created.

We are surrounded by the potential for completely new ways of living. Yet without the Creativity Mindset, these incredible opportunities are invisible.

We are all at a crossroads. Here are some of the choices we face:

We can …

  • Spend our lives looking behind us, trying to recapture what we’ve lost
  • Struggle forever to keep our heads above water amid continuous waves of change
  • Exist in fear of unknown changes to come
  • Feel cheated and betrayed by life

If you’re still clinging to what has passed, let go. Instead, open up and gain:

  • New ways of living
  • New ways of making money
  • New solutions for healing the earth
  • New ways of creating relationships
  • New skills for becoming “stronger at the broken places”
  • New ways of relating to others and creating a better world

Seize the moment!

It’s no secret that the past year has been chaotic for all of us. Our routines and habits have been shattered. While we may long to go back to a time when things were easier, the fact is that many of us were “asleep at the wheel” in our own lives.

A year outside of routine has woken us up—whether we wanted to be awakened or not.

Consider these lines from Rumi:

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.

You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.

People are going back and forth
across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.

The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.

Is this the time for you to claim a life that fits you perfectly?

“You must ask for what you really want. Don’t go back to sleep.”

Your own creative practice

One all-new feature of Practical Wayfinding this year is that you will design a creative practice for yourself you can take forward through your life.

This practice will be a touchstone for the teachings of the course and will help you sustain the Creativity Mindset indefinitely.

  • Create new neural pathways to trigger original thinking
  • Imagine new versions of your life that will energize you to move forward
  • Access whatever source of inspiration feels true to you
  • Lock in the teachings of the course as part of your personal “new normal”
  • Make the Creative Mindset your default state, so you’re inventing your life from this place every day
  • Open yourself to new ways of living, making money, forging relationships, and experiencing optimal health

HOW IS PRACTICAL WAYFINDING DIFFERENT THAN WAYFINDER LIFE COACH TRAINING?

What people are saying:

“The Practical Wayfinding program has been invaluable to me. Martha Beck is hygge for the psyche, especially during a time when there is so much change in so many areas of life and no predictable pattern to our future—this program has been an anchor, a rudder, and a warm, cozy blanket.”
