Be, Awake, Create: Mindful Practices to Spark Creativity
by Rebekah Younger
Settle your mind, connect with the moment, and unleash your creativity with this unique and mindful art journal.
In our demanding, fast-paced culture, it’s increasingly important to find ways to decompress and recuperate from the busyness and stress of life. More and more, mindfulness and creativity are being recognized as antidotes to the speed and overstimulation of modern society. This beautiful book combines the two, offering both creative and meditative practices to provide a guided journey into contemplative art for healing, relaxation, deeper connection, and greater well-being.
