There are many doorways into our mindful selves. Some use meditation, others use running. This week’s guest uses creativity. In her new book, Creating Stillness: Mindful Art Practices and Stories for Navigating Anxiety, Stress, and Fear, Rachel Rose explores how we can use our creative selves as a way to focus and steady the mind, create inner knowing, and cultivate peace.
