Feature of The Week: Eric Kreutter

Published on June 23, 2015

This week we feature Eric Kreutter, one of newest #CreativeMondays members who shares about his passion for creativity. You will be inspired by both the video and the text narrative of his experience and journey of “becoming beauty” a concept that we can all relate with especially as as creatives. I hope this inspires you in your creative journey.

About Me

Hi, my name is Eric Kreutter. In my professional life, I work in Eastern Africa with a vibrant community in the field of youth leadership development. I grew up in this part of the world, where I now live (Kampala, Uganda), with my beautiful wife Dani, and newborn son, Leo. Together we adventure, create, explore, and share in one another’s process of finding meaning and fulfillment in this world.

My work and wanderlust have taken me all across the world (over 60 countries at last count). I consider myself blessed to have seen a lot of “life” in these adventures, a lot of breath taking experiences, of beauty, of joy, and of raw humanity, but also some experiences so horrific that I wish they could be erased from my memory. Indeed all have equally contributed to who I am, however, although I love the spirit of adventure, I have also come to realize that our most valuable travel is the journey within. The journey of the soul is the only thing we can ever really take with us, and it is the only thing that can ever truly share with others, for it is all we ever really have. 

About Becoming Beauty

These journals and creative works are a search for beauty in the human process of becoming – the journey towards meaning, fulfillment, and purpose.

For as long as I can remember I’ve been a scribbler – writing bits and pieces here and there on various mediums available. Unsure of what to do with it, much was left ignored and discarded. However, as I’ve grown into adulthood, this persistent inclination has led me to realize that my creative expression is an undeniable part of how I experience joy in life. Pursuing this joy, fusing my loves of art and wisdom, has led me here: a project in which I seek to create a unique visual and lyrical experience that honestly represents that which is most authentic and natural to my creative spirit.

Although I am not one to ‘put myself out there’ much, this project is a product of my thinking about the world, and where I find myself in it. I’ve come to a place where I feel somehow spiritually responsible (as believe we all should) for participating in others’ soul journey’s of ‘becoming beauty’ in their own right, by sharing mine.
