Brain Plasticity is the Book of Life. It is where we write messages to ourselves and to others, and how often. It is where our narrative plays out and where we posture. Sanity depends on being able to find yourself (like Waldo) in the big picutre. Creativity resonates with playfulness: the most reciprocal of activities. By creating innerness, we have a buffer against the information-bombarded society we live in. When we start to fragment, it is creativity that can fire and wire stability, perspective, and enrichment.

DVD included:

1st part - creative movie
2d part - discussion of titling in art
3rd part - creativity theory

About the Author:

David Courtney is the author of several articles on education, including Mutancy 2000 and the Art of Thresholds. He is also a painter and filmmaker. Using neuroplasticity and neurogenesis by way of creative thresholding, the author evolved from clinical depression to an expansive understanding of brain processes. By placing neuromapping on a spectrum, one gains insight into the role of empathy in conceptual complexity in the brain. As with most people who are affected by a mind that refuses to be compliant with life goals, the struggle for survival becomes dramatically important. Spending a year and a half in bed with depression triggered in David Courtney the need to find a way out of the debilitating labyrinth.
