Creative Calm: Living a Life of Joy and Creativity Through Mindfulness

Sandy Cousens

Creative Calm is a book for those seeking soul enrichment and a more calming gentle life through a creative practice. Written and illustrated by qualified art therapist Sandy Cousens, this holistic guide explores the various ways we can connect with our more creative selves and find peace and fulfilment in doing so. Touching on all areas of life, this guide is for all those who feel they lack purpose, and would like to nurture their more creative selves.

The book features step-by-step guides to practical projects designed to draw out the innate creativity of the reader, and allow them to connect with their purest selves through mindfulness, meditations, mantras and journaling exercises. The book is designed to be accessible and socially conscious, asking the question - are we creating or consuming? - and looking at what that means in the context of introducing a spiritual and artistic practice.

The seven chapters all speak to the chakras, and the book takes the reader on a journey through the self as they explore the various ways they can generate feelings of self-love through art and self-care.
