Oscar Wilde in The Soul of Man Under Socialism:

Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known.

Thomas Merton in No Man Is An Island:

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.

In the Advantace coaching approach art is used as a right brain access method.

Connectivitree (c) is a way of mapping your thoughts and patterns so that you can assist yourself in defining why you function the way you do…


These are the steps towards creating a Connectivitree:

  1. Start at the base of a large sheet of paper with an image of the trunk of a tree.
  2. Use images, symbols, codes, and dimensions throughout your free art session, using at least 3 colors.
  3. Select key words and print using upper or lower case letters.
  4. Each word/image is best alone and sitting on its own line.
  5. The lines should be connected, starting from the trunk. The lines become thinner as they radiate out from the center.
  6. Make the lines the same length as the word/image they support.
  7. Use multiple colors throughout the Connectivitree, for visual stimulation and also for encoding or grouping.
  8. Develop your own personal style to let out what is in your mind.
  9. Use emphasis and show associations in your Connectivitree.
  10. Keep the Connectivitree clear by using radial hierarchy or outlines to embrace your branches.
