Monthly Reflections

October Reflections

Assalaamu ‘alaikum – peace be with you.

Creativity is the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules and patterns to create meaningful new expressions and perspectives. It is characterised by the ability to perceive the world in new ways; to make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena; to find hidden patterns; and to generate imaginative and innovative solutions to difficult problems. It often requires a level of openness; a spirit of curiosity and adventure; and the vulnerability of allowing oneself to make mistakes. We are all creative beings and all have the capacity within us to be creative.

At Inspirited Minds we understand the importance of creativity in improving Mental Health and wellbeing and how it can act as a catalyst for personal and social growth and development. It can be a liberating experience which not only provides self-confidence, but we pray as it deepens our understanding of ourselves and the world around us, it also deepens our understanding and connection to the ultimate Creator, and as always, we are open to your comments, ideas and suggestions; so please do get in touch by replying to this email.

Du’as always,
