Mindfulness and Creativity – how artists are benefiting from meditating

I came across this article yesterday (link below) – I totally agree with the author – mindfulness is essential for me for all my practices, photography, drawing or painting.  I use it to settle my mind before creating and for me that is a very productive way of working.  Of course there are huge benefits outside my artistic life also!

Artist Slater Bradley  said “I think there’s a neo-spiritual art movement happening. At a certain point the truth is a bigger subject than pop culture. With meditation you find your inner peace, your inner truth, your centered truth, and then you find the world, and the world finds its center. That’s a noble pursuit for art these days.”
