You Are Michelangelo...And You Are David!, by Shahana Dattagupta
Paperback, 208 pages, March 27, 2013

You Are Michelangelo...And You Are DavidSpringing from the premise that creativity is our true nature and communion with Spirit, YOU ARE MICHELANGELO…AND YOU ARE DAVID! presents concrete ideas and actions for the intentioned and disciplined practice of creativity, with implications for creating both oneself and physical works of meaning and value for this world.

In this book, Shahana Dattagupta explores human creativity not merely as a nice-to-have workplace skill or the exclusive forte of inventors and artists, but as the very soul-purpose for each and every one of us, as our responsibility towards expressing full human potential, and as the way to transcend fearful survival to create a loving, thriving existence for oneself, for all humanity, and for the planet.

Discover how your creative projects and initiatives in the world are really playgrounds and construction sites for the creation of you! Explore how you unconsciously create yourself and your life merely by the stories you tell, and how you can completely transform yourself and your life by shifting from fear-driven re-action to Love-inspired action. And learn how to practice your creativity by calling into action and integration its Yin and Yang principles.
