Overview
Maxine Clair, award-winning author of the critically acclaimed short story collection "Rattlebone" and the novel "October Suite, " has assembled a deeply inspirational yet practical book to help readers access their inner creativity. "Imagine This" is a beautifully written set of deeply personal stories from which Clair draws examples of how we can be aware of the now, keep ourselves motivated, and create work of which we are proud.
"Imagine This" explains how some of us consciously choose the vehicle through which we express our magnificence be it business, art, science, or other while others of us have dutifully plied a trade in arenas that society has suggested are worthwhile, with self-expression only fixed on a hobby. Both, Clair maintains, can contribute to a good life. Occasionally, however, a moment comes that is sufficiently insistent on deep examination. In that moment we float the possibility for expression of a greater self.
"Imagine This" shows readers how to be aware of these moments and how our inner creativity is always seeking an outlet. By combining captivating memoir with step-by-step advice, Clair helps us find and develop our own unique and personal creative outlets."

Life coach and poet Clair (Rattlebone) advocates the New Age mission of self-realization with this succinct, easy-to-follow workbook. A survivor of domestic abuse, Clair earned two advanced degrees; after a long career as a medical technologist, she became an English professor at George Washington University and an award-winning writer. Setting the example for how self-realization improved her life, she outlines the journey to empowerment that worked for her in nine steps: for example, the first step toward “pursuing a greater sense of wakefulness” is simply to keep a journal. Each chapter opens with Clair’s personal problems and how she overcame them, ending with a series of exercises that require some measure of introspection as well as a time commitment. For those who may be floundering, she advises looking for inspiration in “places that hold your idea of beauty” or simply chilling by watching “wall paper dry.” While followers of Shakti Gawain and Louise Hay may be familiar with the technique of using affirmations to implement positive change, for the uninitiated, Clair brings a fresh point of view to the pursuit of self-fulfillment. (Nov.)
