Abstract

The experience of stillness is one which has been studied through meditation and in relation to the dance/movement experience. There seems to be a close correspondence between stillness and the creative or art making process and thus, I postulate that stillness is an inherent part of the creative process. Following a heuristic line of inquiry, I sought to discover the nature of stillness and as it relates to the creative process through my own experiences. In this paper I share my journey through the various stages and realisations which have led me to learn how to further enhance the experience of stillness, to listen to and trust tacit knowledge, and to use art making for its potential to quiet the discursive mind.
