The Healing Power of Love and Creativity

988669_10152882434160652_1893030052_nWelcome to another Tuesday with TED. This week I am thrilled to share a powerful talk given by poet, writer, artist, and educator Tanaya Winder, who is a good friend and former classmate of my good friend, Jennifer Simpson. So I guess you could say Tanaya is a friend once removed.

Tanaya is from the Southern Ute, Duckwater Shoshone, and Pyramid Lake Paiute Nations. A winner of the 2010 A Room of Her Own Foundation’s Orlando prize in poetry, her work has been showcased around the world. When you see this video, it’s easy to see why. Filmed at TEDxABQ 2013, Tanaya delivers a moving talk on the power of love and creativity.

How do you feel after watching this? Did it change how you define success? What are the moments that coil themselves around your DNA? How could you use these moments to enhance your creativity?

Until next time,
Cynthia Patton
