Could Mindfulness Meditation Increase Creativity?

Could Mindfulness Meditation Increase Creativity? | creative process or what inspires creativity? | Scoop.it

One of the benefits of a meditation practice is that it allows you to access what we call "beginner's mind" -- which comes in handy when you are problem solving. Here's a study that shows how people who meditate are able to find quicker, easier solutions to logic problems than people who do not meditate. Given the complexities in the world today, having "beginner's mind" can make your life easier in many ways -- I like to think of it as X-Ray vision.

Alexandra Florea's curator insight, March 14, 2013 2:25 PM

" Creativity is paradoxical. To create, a person must have knowledge but forget the knowledge, must see unexpected connections in things but not have a mental disorder, must work hard but spend time doing nothing as information incubates, must create many ideas yet most of them are useless, must look at the same thing as everyone else, yet see something different, must desire success but embrace failure, must be persistent but not stubborn, and must listen to experts but know how to disregard them."
