This Sunday, May 31, 2015 Creativity and the Practice of Meditation

Dear Ones,

No matter what level of creativity one engages in one's life, meditation and the path of practice has much to offer. The practice of creativity and the practice of meditation have many parallels and as each interconnect and reinforce one another in meaningful ways, this then leads to a more balanced lifestyle. As our inner selves get nourished and nurtured through creative expression along with the stabilizing effects of meditation we are better equipped to meet the world with other beings.

Let's share our observations and experiences together with both! Buddha's teachings have a lot to complement the creative process whether it's painting, writing, cooking, gardening, knitting, woodworking, life coaching, interfacing the technical with the real world, etc. Looking forward to our time together!
