This project was designed to create guided meditation to enhance creativity. Research was done to gather information on guided imagery, meditation and storytelling to gain a strong understanding of meditation in general, and to determine the themes of the various meditations. The guided meditations for this project were called, Zenventures, a combination of peace and adventure. The guided mediations take the person on a journey where they connect to their creative potential. A success plan was created to ensure the project stayed on track. There were several outcomes from the project: seven written meditations, seven Zenventures (recorded meditations with music), a website and a music distribution channel. During the creative process of designing and developing the Zenventures, several key learnings took place. Finally, the student writing this paper came to appreciate how much she had learned during the two years of her Master’s program, and could see information from various courses reflected both in the Zenventures and in this paper.
