Creativity Day Workshops

 

Energizing, Inspiring, and Revitalizing

Creativity Day provides a wide variety of options to fit a range of interests—dancing, singing, writing, mindfulness training, and so much more. What a way to start off a professional, clinical conference! Whatever your goal is during Creativity Day—energize for the days (or year) ahead, try something new, get your creative juices flowing, take a day to just enjoy and take care of yourself—I hope you were able to meet your goals and more.

Welcome to the Symposium!

 

The Creativity Day Kickoff

Welcome to Symposium 2012! Here in Washington, DC, spring has arrived just in time for the annual Symposium, and it all feels just right: the cherry blossoms are thriving outside, and the spirit and energy inside the Omni Shoreham is already palpable as everyone is beginning to arrive.


Of course, I think many (myself included) were a little bit bleary-eyed as we greeted each other sleepily among the coffee and Danish at this early hour, some after arduous travels to get here in the first place. But as usual, Richard Gonzalez’s invigorating Creativity Day Kickoff was even better than caffeine to wake us up and get us excited about the day ahead and the conference in its entirety.


Although I knew what to expect in general from this welcoming event, it didn’t cease to astonish me, once again, how good it felt to get up from our seats and dance and move altogether—especially on a Thursday morning, when I’d usually be sitting in my desk at my office, working and sipping coffee. It made me feel like, yes, the Symposium has begun! And this is the start of an entirely different kind of day.

If you were able to participate, how did this Welcoming Event make you feel? Whether it’s your first time attending or your 35th, we want to know what you think about this first part of the conference and as we move through the conference experience together.

The Symposium promises to be very full of activity, learning, inspiration, and fun. Please just take a few minutes to let us know what you’re thinking and experiencing, here on the blog, on Facebook, or on Twitter, and just check out our Symposium Live page so you can constantly stay updated with what’s going on at the conference as it happens. We want to hear from you so we can all share our different experiences.

Creativity Day Workshops

 
Creativity Day is a rare opportunity for those of us stuck in the grind of day-to-day sameness and seemingly endless to-do lists. This particularly special day of the conference affords us an opportunity to try something new, to explore a passion we don’t get to pursue in our careers, or to discover creative techniques that can be incorporated into our daily personal and professional lives.

Each year, a host of talented and inspirational leaders inspire us in different arenas, offering us the chance to engage in creative adventures like dancing, yoga, photography, and qigong. Whether we’re seasoned singers or tone deaf, it’s a unique and revitalizing experience to try new things or engage in something you know you already love.

Creativity Day Kickoff

 
Welcome to Creativity Day! Richard Gonzalez led our Creativity Day Kickoff in Afro-Caribbean dance and song, awakening our minds and bodies from early-morning sleepiness, and signaling the beginning of a different kind of day: a day intended to spark inspiration in ourselves and others.

Check back later for some photos of this energetic event; maybe you’ll see yourself or your friends. If you attended the Creativity Day Kickoff—particularly if you’re a first-timer—what did you think?
