The psychology of Flow at Creative Mornings Ottawa

Flow is a state where time stops existing and the ‘sense of self’ disappears. We’ve all experienced this at one point in our lives, oftentimes by accident. For some of us, flow came while skiing down a difficult hill, and for others, while painting a lavish landscape or performing in a play. Whatever the activity, flow is likely to come when the challenges of the situation match a person’s skills, when the goal of the activity is clear, and when people value the activity.

In this talk, the audience will be introduced to the concept of flow, they will be asked to reflect on their own experiences, and practice ‘hacking’ into this state through a play-based activity.
