Share a Story - Change the World

I am currently working on a project here in Bellingham, Washington, and I am seeking feedback to the following question:

"What elements are present when artists reach a point where their art is "working," that is, when their art reaches a state of flow?

Thanks Yvonne I appreciate your reply. I will give Stephen a call.
If you're interested I could send you a copy of our research proposal so that you can see what we are up to.
Right now we are in draft 3 and we are having it reviewed by some social science experts. It is really quite and exciting project and one that I had not foreseen storytelling taking me into at all. The project is a pinnacle of applied storytelling.

Hi Doug,
Long time no see. I saw your note and rummaged unsuccessfully through one of my piles o'stuff. Kripalu Yoga Center published on article on flow & artists sometime in the past 1-2 years, probably the past year. My vague memory is that Stephen Cope co-wrote it. They're nice folks. So you might call and ask them for a copy. 413-448-3400

To answer your question: when I'm in flow, I feel the beings in the room as one entity, breathing together. While I'm most aware of my self as one point in that entity, I feel like its only one point in a larger organism. And I see people's faces shining like moons. I'm aware of the story, but not paying that much attention to the words. I'm more aware of the ebb and flow in the whole entity.
