Wild Ideas: Creativity from the Inside Out #FridayReflections

Today’s prompt for #FridayReflections calls for taking a word out of a book you are currently reading and using it to write a post. However, I’m reading an ARC of Wild Ideas and it’s hard for me to find page 25 as the prompt suggests. I decided instead to tell you about the book and recommend it to you.

Wild Ideas: Creativity from the Inside Out

Wild Ideas takes you on an intimate journey through the seven stages of the creative process. All along the way, counselor, artist, and writer Cathy Wild interweaves her own deeply personal story as well as provocative insights gleaned from her many years in private practice. Discover your authentic voice while exploring timeless themes that compel creative expression—curiosity and imagination, mystery and mourning, chaos and clarity, suffering and gratitude and many more. Feel deeply supported as you unlock the mysteries of your own creative power. Beautifully conceived and written, Wild Ideas is a feast for the mind, heart, and soul.


Cathy Wild has spent more than 30 years developing innovative approaches to healing that integrate powerful body-centered techniques with the creative process. While expanding her private practice, Cathy became a popular speaker, workshop leader, and corporate consultant.

She has facilitated women’s groups, writing groups, and book groups; and has taught in the extended education program at Santa Rosa Junior College.

As a pioneer in somatic counseling, the expressive arts; and the field of life coaching, Cathy was featured as a creativity expert on the PBS television series: “In the Prime”. Today, her life’s work has deepened and evolved into Body-Centered Healing—a dynamic, experiential process that supports clients on a profound personal journey of transformation.

When she isn’t writing, you can find Cathy painting in the studio, puttering in the garden, or baking up a batch of cookies for her friends. Cathy lives in Northern California.

  1. This is what we all need, isn’t it, Corinne? Knowledge of expressing our feelings through creativity, a way to give release to our hidden emotions and find catharsis through the process.

  2. Cathy Wild seems to be a very expressive and creative person and her book is aptly called ‘Wild Ideas’. Art or creativity can be on sand (as sand-art), rangoli on water or colourful kites of different shapes in the sky.
