Art is a Spiritual Path is a book about the celebration of artwork, the honoring of the maker/creator, as well as the image. What I appreciate about this book is Allen’s call for attention of the witnessing of one’s work, without judgment, holding compassion for the self, as well as the other. I also appreciate her use of dialog, allowing the image coming forth to speak, giving it voice changes the image to a relationship, rather than just a task one is completing. Also appreciate awareness to building a safe community in which to nurture one’s growth among those who are willing to not offer help.
I encourage you to buy a copy of Art is a Spiritual Path for a better understanding of your own creative process. Whether you're a master artist or beginning artist, this is an excellent book.
