Description

Creativity is at the top of our basic human needs and is a natural expression of our species that has been repressed to our own detriment. Creativity Roots is an exploration of our extraordinary capacity to be creative; a movement to rediscover our natural ability to innovate.
We will do this by demystifying creativity, expanding our understanding of ourselves and embracing our own potential to innovate.

Creativity Roots - Episode 20 by Ronald Paredes I first met Yolanda through a social media art group when she was making a call for volunteers to participate in one of her photography projects. The first time I met her in person the first impression is this very tall and slender, beautiful and unpretentious woman, then I got to talk to her and I was immediately hit by her insightful and caring personality, it only takes a few seconds to know what Yolanda is all about because of her blunt honesty, an aspect of her personality that she admits sometimes gets her in trouble. I was chasing this interview for a while because I knew Yolanda would give me a very interesting view of her creative process and she delivered. Find more of Yolanda and her work at: http://www.yovohagrafie.de/https://www.behance.net/mail342742d9https://www.linkedin.com/in/yolanda-vom-hagen-6b63702a/https://www.lensculture.com/yolanda-vom-hagenhttp://www.shanghai-flaneur.com/flaneur-faculty/yolanda-vom-hagen/The music at the end of the episode is from an Indie Rock band called Stray Monroe, find more of them at: Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/straymonroe Twitter – https://twitter.com/straymonroe Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/straymonroe/ YouTube – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCilhJYS_ATm0k5WHyPYnivw Visit www.creativityroots.com for more of this episode Support the podcast at www.patreon.com/creativityroots Remember to send your creative work, comments, and feedback at creativityroots@yahoo.com Also, follow me on Instagram @creativityroots 
Creativity Roots - Episode 19 by Ronald Paredes Note: For those listeners located in mainland China the podcast is accessible by using a VPN connection. At the moment of recording this podcast, we are celebrating Valentine’s Day and what a perfect day to think about the effects that love have on us, especially when it comes to creativity, what is it about love that provokes in us that urge to express our love creatively. There a scientific reason to that and it has to do with a change produced in the way we think and most importantly in a disruption of our logical thinking process. Love drives us crazy and that is a wonderful thing. In this episode I cite a couple of articles about the studies on our thinking process when we are in love and how people involved in healthy relationships live longer, you can find those in the following links: https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/does-falling-in-love-make/https://www.health.harvard.edu/healthbeat/strengthen-relationships-for-longer-healthier-lifeThe creator for Valentine’s Day is my dear friend Gemini George performing his song Evening Melody, find him on his website: http://www.geminigeorge.com/ Visit www.creativityroots.com for more of this episode Support the podcast at www.patreon.com/creativityroots Remember to send your creative work, comments, and feedback at creativityroots@yahoo.com Also, follow me on Instagram @creativityroots

Creativity Roots - Episode 17 - hosted by Ronald ParedesI was in search of somebody who could give me a perspective from the position of a student and Aya was the perfect person to give me that insight. Being born and raised in Syria, where she lived until the Syrian war started. Later moving to China with her family where she studied for four years in the Chinese public education system and finally finishing high school education at a foreign education curriculum, she has a reference from an insiders perspective of how it is to study under these three very different systems.Visit www.creativityroots.com for more of this episodeSupport the podcast at www.patreon.com/creativityrootsRemember to send your creative work, comments, and feedback at creativityroots@yahoo.comAlso, follow me on Instagram @creativityroots
Creativity Roots - Episode 16 by Ronald ParedesAfter all the tragic events that keep happening under our noses I can’t help to think that we have failed to ourselves, we have fallen victims of our own ignorance, our lack of education, our incapacity to sustain all the social battles that we fought and won in the past, because of our bad choices. Societal deceases like racism, inequality, homophobia, xenophobia, antisemitism, intolerance, and the worst of all white supremacism, all signs of a great ignorance, fear and manipulation.When we educate ourselves and most importantly our children, we prevent falling for manipulations from populist and criminals, people with questionable characters that we have put in positions of power and influence.We can’t keep failing to ourselves, we need to develop a generation of individuals with the capacity to make better choices, to analyze, discern, and understand the consequences of making decisions out of manipulation, disinformation and ignorance.The creator this week is a guy called Don Draper and his upbeat and delightful song “Got U" Find more of him at:https://soundcloud.com/don-draper-musichttps://www.instagram.com/dondrapermusic/https://twitter.com/dondrapermusicVisit www.creativityroots.com for more of this episodeSupport the podcast at www.patreon.com/creativityroots Remember to send your creative work, comments, and feedback at creativityroots@yahoo.comAlso, follow me on Instagram @creativityroots
Creativity Roots - Episode 15 by Ronald ParedesIn this episode I reflect on my own experience teaching to a group of highly unmotivated and disengaged group of high school students who have turned this way by being enclosed for several years in sterile classrooms, under an educational regime the stifle their creativity and forced them to fit into standardized mentality, hence repressing who they really are.We know this is wrong and yet we keep trusting the education of our kids to these institutions that very often care more about fulfilling a program than forming strong and critical individualsThe creator this week is a woman I came across in the internet called Jessica Hart with her song "Soul Phazed” a very enjoyable and delightful tuneFind more of here at:https://soundcloud.com/boxedtreatshttps://www.facebook.com/jessicahartmusichttps://www.instagram.com/jess_sweet_hart/Visit www.creativityroots.com for more of this episodeRemember to send your creative work, comments, and feedback at creativityroots@yahoo.comAlso, follow me on Instagram @creativityroots
Creativity Roots - Episode 14 by Ronald ParedesLike money, fame should never be the purpose for doing anything in life, since the arrival of the internet the idea of fame has completely changed, everybody with a camera and an outrageous behavior now have the chance to become famous by simply pulling pranks on people or making some stupid challenges that many times have ended up badly. We have to be more selective about what we consume, what kind of role model we have in our life, who are we following.Fame is an illusion, is temporal, it vanishes with time and not necessarily leaving something relevant behind. Instead of fame, we should work for legacy, by producing work that is relevant, important, of benefit to somebody, something constructive.The creators this week are the Venezuelan duo from Masseratti 2Lts and their theme “Levantate”.

Creativity Roots - Episode 13 by Ronald ParedesHave you ever being so afraid of being judged or criticized?Criticism is one of the biggest inhibitors that creators and pretty much everybody face, every single person in this planet experienced it constantly, it can completely restrain you from expressing your ideas regardless of how well you do, in fact, the better you do more exposed you are to judgment and criticism. For a confident person, with a healthy level of self-esteem and fully aware of their motivation and purpose, criticism represents a source of information an opportunity for growth.Criticism is a signal that there is some conventionalism that is being broken, it means that the work it’s having an impact, negative or positive but there is something moving and changing and changes always make some people uncomfortable.* Don’t receive criticism with arrogance * Maintain your work aligned to the highest possible purpose * Be open-minded and objective enough to listen and adjust but never compromise on your ideaThe creator this week is the recurrent and always powerful Krystal Gypsy Orellano with her poetry piece called “Normal”Visit www.creativityroots.com for more of this episode and KrystalRemember to send your creative work, comments, and feedback at creativityroots@yahoo.com
Creativity Roots - Episode 12 by Ronald ParedesToday is September 30th, and we are celebrating #InternationalPodcastDay. It is a good day to think about the reasons why we started podcasting, obviously we all have something we think is worth saying, maybe we feel that we represent a group of people with some specific need or maybe some of us just want to entertain.Whatever it is the motivation for us to get in front of the microphone we need to be always aware that we are occupying a space, that we are stirring a pot somewhere, that we are influencing people and for that reason is important to be aware that all this comes with a responsibility.Congratulations to all my fellow podcasters!Happy #InternationalPodcastDay!Visit my website: www.CreativityRoots.com
