Tourists all over the world welcome unique creative experiences that enrich and inspire them when they travel. This is called "Creative Tourism," and it is different from other types of tourism. But why is it needed, and how does one go about developing it? You'll find answers to these questions and more in this book which is based on and draws from the proceedings of a Santa Fe & UNESCO International Conference on Creative Tourism. Held in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, from September 28 to October 2, 2008, this first-of-a-kind conference brought together delegates from sixteen countries around the world to engage in a global conversation about how best to leverage the tourism sector for community and economic development. In other words, how tourism can best be organized and practiced to enhance economic benefits to cities, provinces, and countries globally. Conceived, in large part, through the efforts of members of UNESCO's Creative Cities Network, the conference was designed to bridge theory and practice, as well as provide a forum for sharing ideas and best practices. In this book you will find not only a collection of essays by some of the "thought pioneers" in the emerging and still evolving field of Creative Tourism, but also a wide array of resources, including many practical examples and illustrations of Creative Tourism in practice from around the world. At a time when activities and initiatives aimed at promoting tourism in a competitive economy have become essential, the notion of Creative Tourism captured in this book offers a life line that cannot and should not be ignored. "Creative Tourism: A Global Conversation" should be required reading for all tourism and community/economic/cultural development professionals, artists, elected and appointed public officials, and tourists who are seeking destinations that offer customized, creative, experiential, authentic, and meaningful experiences that are tied to the uniqueness and "spirit" of a place.

World-renowned psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning is one of the most important books of modern times. Frankl's personal story of finding a reason to live in the most horrendous of circumstances, Nazi concentration camps, has inspired millions. Now, Prisoners of Our Thoughts applies Frankl's philosophy to the workplace, detailing seven principles for increasing your capacity to deal with work challenges, finding meaning in your daily work life, and achieving your highest potential. Alex Pattakos, Ph.D., a dedicated student of Frankl's thought, was urged by Frankl himself to write this important audiobook. In it, Pattakos draws on the entire body of Frankl's work, illustrating his philosophy through seven easy-to-understand principles: 1. Exercise the freedom to choose your attitude 2. Realize your will to meaning 3. Detect the meaning of life's moments 4. Don't work against yourself 5. Look at yourself from a distance 6. Shift your focus of attention 7. Extend beyond yourself Through stories, examples, and thought-provoking exercises, Pattakos illustrates how you can apply each of these principles to various work situations and everyday life. As Dr. Frankl would say, only we, as individuals, can answer for our own life by detecting the meaning at any given moment and assuming the responsibility for weaving our own unique tapestry of existence. The search for meaning at work offers us both formidable challenges and ample opportunities. Prisoners of Our Thoughts makes Frankl's seminal work accessible and relevant, opening up new opportunities for finding personal meaning through work and living an authentic life.
