“There is a treasure map inside you, a map to your deepest dreams, to a power that you have had since birth, a guide to a world of unimaginable riches.”

Encinitas, California – August 26, 2008 – Author Aliyah Marr, “The Guru of Creativity” soon to release in print the first of several books on the nature of creativity. The book is now available in ebook version for review by qualified individuals.

Parallel Mind is a book about how to access the creative force in all of us by awakening the inner child. Parallel Mind is not about how to draw or paint, but how to think like an artist. Aliyah Marr draws from her experience as a teacher, visual artist, poet, author, and designer to demonstrate how you can change your body, your profession, your relationship, and your life just by changing your thoughts.

This book celebrates the gift of creative consciousness. All great artists and creative thinkers know that the way to tap into the power of freshness and originality is to revive the creative “inner child.” The author helps you reclaim the birthright of your natural creativity through exercises designed to develop and inspire your full creative potential.

“You have the map, you have found the treasure — Parallel Mind invites you to open the lock and discover the life of your dreams.”

Design schools are interested in using Parallel Mind, The Art of Creativity as a textbook on creativity, while corporations are interested in it as a topic for leadership training and seminars. Noted individuals in the arts and sciences such as David Heenan and Temple Grandin are championing this book.
