We live in a fast-paced, demanding world. Even if we are aware of the importance of tapping into our gratitude, we can easily be seduced by societyís siren calls of consumerism and envy. Itís hard to stay grateful in this kind of environment, but Crafting Gratitude can help us to remember the incredible, overflowing, abundant richness of life.
In this book, author Maggie Oman Shannon explores crafts and creativity as a practice with enormous physical, mental, and spiritual benefits. By immersing ourselves in a craft with intention and mindfulness, we can quiet those voices around us and in us and we can enter sacred stillness. Through revealing interviews, personal stories, and forty suggested activities, the author shows how creative processes can become spiritual practices.
Whether you're an aspiring artist, longtime craftsperson, or someone who has never set foot in a craft store (yet!), you'll find something in Crafting Gratitude to inspire you..
