Creativity is a language in itself, a means for expression, exploration, meditation, and healing.

James McCrae is a creative strategist and the founder of the Sunflower Club, a global community dedicated to creativity as a tool for personal healing and social transformation. His books include Sh#t Your Ego Says and How to Laugh in Ironic Amusement During Your Existential Crisis. James lives in Austin, Texas.
