This blog parallels the material in Aliyah Marr’s line of books and seminars on creativity. In the process of writing her second book, she places excerpts from her writing in the blog. Parallel Mind, The Art of Creativity is the first in a series of books on creativity; it was written inside this blog for one full year before being published in late 2008. This first book explores what the author Aliyah Marr defines as “pure” or artistic creativity. The upcoming book will outline “applied” or practical creativity.
