“We have art in order not to die of the truth.” – Nietzsche

Few of us expected a pandemic, a political crisis, and multiple natural disasters these past couple of years, much less all at once. Yet here we are, each of us struggling through a wide spectrum of social, financial, physical and spiritual challenges. I will not say that art is the answer, but I do believe it is part of the answer.

Question 1

What does my body need?

Activity 1

Constructive Rest

Lie down on the floor on a yoga mat or blanket. Bend your knees upward toward the ceiling until your feet are flat on the floor, hip-width apart. Rest your arms down by your sides. If you wish, place a pillow or folded towel under your head.

Close your eyes. Imagine the soles of your feet softening and sinking into the floor. Visualize the same for the back of your pelvis, then your middle back, shoulder blades, and head. Relax your jaw. Rest like this for 5-10 minutes.

The Concept

The Lotus Journal is a year-long practice tool available both in book form and as a weekly email subscription. Each of its 50 pages features one piece of art, one check-in question, and one healing activity to increase connection, clarity, and creativity. Some of the activities are playful (draw with your eyes closed), others meditative (square breathing), and still others relational (call a friend). All can be completed in less than 10 minutes, and all can also be expanded into longer or daily practices if you wish.

Revolutions are fueled by creative energy.

In the sense that it gestates, labors, and births something new, a revolution is a creative process. Whether you’re in the midst of your own personal revolution right now or joining a public one unfolding on streets and within institutions, the Lotus Journal is designed to strengthen and nourish the roots of your own creative power.

“It was like receiving a deep breath in my inbox. Each painting was completely unique, and the exercises gave me new perspectives to play with, each bringing me back to myself.”
– Elise Dorsett, Transformational Life Coach
