There is a quiet revolution going on, wherein people are choosing to “live the handmade life”.
In my interview with author Maggie Oman Shannon we speak about her new book entitled ” Crafting Calm: Projects andPractices for Creativity and Contemplation.” Her book provides guidance and ideas on how to use crafting as a means to create more mindfulness and spirituality in your life.
If you are like me you understand the benefits of gardening, wood working, beading and the endless array of crafts and hobbies you can become involved with to create more peace and calm in your life.
Maggie states as our world has become increasingly dependent on technology, artisans and everyday crafters are finding a renewed satisfaction in making something with their own hands.
Look at the explosion with the social media site “Pinterest” with currently 48.9 million users sharing ideas about crafting, cooking and anything handmade.
In Maggie’s book she inspires the reader with a broad assortment of spiritual practices gathered from crafts communities around the world, as well as from everyday people who have adopted creative froms of spiritual practices.
I encourage you to listen to and enjoy my interview with Maggie as we discuss the various crafts that inspire peace, calm and a greater spiritual connection.
