How would you like to learn how to control your mind so you can tap into your inner source of inspiration any time?

Pretty much everyone comes up with a great idea at least once in awhile. But when they come, and how often seems to be beyond our control. There’s something that Disney Studios and the ancient Yogis of India knew. They both knew that to optimize our creativity we need to learn to control our states of mind.

“Certain methods of meditation can promote creative thinking.”
