Catalytic Color: Flow & The Balanced Brain Benefit

#ColorNFlow   #SXSW

Our Panel Will Discuss:

* Why it’s important to utilize both brain hemispheres to run a Successful Business, including Left Brain (analytical & task-oriented) & Right Brain (Creative & Intuitive, where Innovation & Insights occur, often during Flow state).

* The benefits of Flow, an optimal, Right-Brain integrated state of consciousness where people feel & perform their best & Innovation occurs. Most cutting-edge scientific & Technological Breakthroughs occur in Flow as do major athletic & art achievements. A Recent McKinsey 10-year study showed Top Executives are 5 times more effective when operating in Flow & if we increase the amount we’re in Flow by a mere 20%, Workplace Productivity would double.

* How to optimize Color & Indoor Lighting in work environments to enhance Flow, promote Teamwork, maximize Productivity & Peak Performance & dramatically improve Employee Health & Job Satisfaction.

* How to quickly & easily Train our Brains (neuroplasticity) using Right-Brain exercises to access Flow whenever desired.

Benefits of Flow & Why you Will Want to Attend this Panel – from an Entrepreneur & Engineer

“I had some concerns about Leanne Venier’s Color & Creative Flow course being rather woo-woo in nature, taught by someone so caught up in enlightenment that their feet floated off the ground. The truth is, Leanne’s course was a reflection of her own groundedness in the reality of everyday life. She is that rare breed of human as teacher who combines the best of an engineer’s mind with that of an artist’s mind, all with a desire to help others find their greatest talents themselves. I felt right at home with the way she led the course.

There are specific reasons for everything Leanne does. During the course I began to realize the finesse of her delivery of these ideas. The use of colors as tools for finding your creative flow is ingenious, and you get why that is so as you listen to her talk and allow yourself to experience what she has on offer.

So after I had the initial ‘ah-has’ around some personal issues that emerged, I just let go more fully on the second exercise and noticed a kind of giddy excitement. That was huge. I was beginning to sense the ‘feeling’ of being in my creative flow. This is what I wanted to learn, and this is what I want to bring to other media creators.

As we continue into this 21st century, I expect we’ll see more and more businesses of all types focusing on these kinds of exercises because in the end the machines will be doing the dreary work. It’s the humans who will be required to do the creative work. You cannot manufacture creative work nor can creative work always be done 8-5.

I can imagine Leanne’s insights of light and colors and how they impact our lives being shared as a secret weapon for architectural teams, ad firms, design firms, even sales teams wanting to truly gain the competitive edge.

Creativity is the higher currency of this new economy. Go to this course and see for yourself.”

Is this F-word the Secret to Optimal Human Performance and Ultimate Happiness? The Research says YES!

Learn to quickly, easily and reliably attain this often-elusive state of FLOW. Flow is an optimal state of consciousness where all great creative insights, inventions, breakthroughs in technology, writing, sports and art occur; where the brain processes far more information in less time; and where Peak Performance occurs in all aspects of life. Next workshops are September 13 & 14, 2014 in Austin, TX. REGISTER TODAY. Only a few spaces left!

"FLOW" is a term coined by the famous Psychologist, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, to indicate a Meditative, Right Brain, Optimal State of Consciousness. 
There are moments in which your mind becomes so entirely absorbed in the activity that you "forget yourself" and begin to act effortlessly, with a heightened sense of awareness of the here and now.

In FLOW, mental and physical abilities soar and the brain takes in more information per second, processing it more deeply.
This FLOW state is often very elusive for most people, and until now, there has been no simple and quick way to reliably tap into it whenever desired.

 

Being in FLOW brings about:

– Enhanced Creativity
– Physical & Emotional Healing
– Creative Problem Solving
– Peak Performance in Business & Sports (see Research below)
– The ability to get more work done in less time
– Greater happiness in all aspects of life
– Improved Relationships
– The ability to tap into one’s Inner Wisdom & Intuition
– Rapid & Accurate Insights into problems or challenges one may be facing in business, personal life or health … 
…and more

A Few Testimonials:

“ Leanne Venier’s Flow workshop was a rich experience. I’ve been continuing to use what I learned and experienced, using the color play to gain insights and practice dropping into flow.  The workshop experience and the practice at home has helped me become familiar with what it feels like to be in flow, what the sensation is like in the body, and I can more easily access it and tap into it as I go through daily encounters in my life.   I appreciate the ongoing benefits from my experience in the workshop. “  – Melissa W. – Austin, TX

 

 “Although I know the creative energies flow within me, I tend to live too much in my head from day to day.  In hopes of cultivating a little more balance in my life, I registered for Leanne’s Color & Healing Creativity workshop.  Something about the setting surrounded by Leanne’s abstract color creations, the relaxing evocative music, or the simplicity of the mandala task set the stage well for my analytical brain to take a much-needed vacation and for my creative impulses to reawaken and find expression.  There’s something wonderful about just sitting back and seeing what emerges when one’s creativity is given full rein.  The workshop helped to reawaken in me some long-dormant creative juices; my hunch is it would have a similar effect on others.”

–   Dr. Robert Price, PhD

 

"I’m certain it was the mandala and color work (that we did in your workshop) that inspired a flood of new ideas for my script… within just a few hours after the workshop!"

 -Jolyn Janis | Actress  Filmmaker Art Director 

 

“My fiance and I had a wonderful time in your class–it was a great experience and reminded me of how much I enjoyed art and flow. Thanks Leanne! :)”

Increasing the ‘meaning quotient’ of work using FLOW State | McKinsey & Company – Make it Happen with Leanne Venier’s Creativity & Flow Workshops!

MCKINSEY QUARTERLY ARTICLE:
On the Psychological Science of Using Flow States for Peak Performance, Increased Productivity & Greater Job & Life Satisfaction

“The mental state that gives rise to great performance—in sports, business, or the arts—has been described in different ways. The psychologist Mihàly Csìkszentmihàlyi studied thousands of subjects, from sculptors to factory workers, and asked them to record their feelings at intervals throughout the working day. He observed that people fully employing their core capabilities to meet a goal or challenge created what he called ‘flow’.

Athletes describe the same feeling as ‘being in the zone’; musicians talk about ‘being in the groove’.

More important, Csìkszentmihàlyi found that individuals who frequently experienced it (flow) were more productive and derived greater satisfaction from their work than those who didn’t. They set goals for themselves to increase their capabilities, thereby tapping into a seemingly limitless well of energy. And they expressed a willingness to repeat those activities in which they achieved flow even if they were not being paid to do so.

Flow sounds great in theory, but few business leaders have mastered the skill of generating it reliably in the workplace…

(QUESTION:) … Can employees in the workplace experience similar performance peaks and, if so, what can top management do to encourage the mental state that brings them about?”

ANSWER:
YES, they can! And so can you!

When you attend Leanne Venier’s Healing Colors Creativity & Flow Workshop you’ll learn to quickly and reliably enter Flow whenever you’d like …
… for Peak Performance, increased productivity and increased job satisfaction … in addition to all the physical & emotional healing and mind-body wellness benefits it brings!
