Higher Creativity

Insight is the mind's magic in action, solving problems, understanding relationships, creating new images--with a speed and certainty unavailable to ordinary consciousness. Breakthrough insights go even further. They take a quantum leap beyond ordinary creativity and our previous ways of looking at things to a whole new method of resolving our difficulties. Almost all of us have experienced such moments in relation to work-oriented or personal problems and wish we could have them more often. In fact, we can.

Walking on Water

This time Derrick Jensen brings us into his classroom--whether college or maximum security prison--where he teaches writing. He reveals how schools perpetuate the great illusion that happiness lies outside of ourselves and that learning to please and submit to those in power makes us into lifelong clock-watchers.
