THE MASTER PRACTITIONER AND LEONARDO DA VINCI:
META-COGNITION, CREATIVITY AND NEUROSCIENCE
NAN WALLER BURNETT
Nan Waller Burnett, M.A., will lead an interactive discussion (postponed from March!) on the current research in creativity theory. She'll explain how the work of the master practitioner is informed through meta-cognition, intentional focused self-referential thinking,
an understanding of the creative processes in the brain and neurobiology. She'll give an overview of the creative thinking strategies of Leonardo da Vinci and their relevance to our work. Participants will engage in interactive exercises designed to develop the creative and intuitive areas of their brains.
