I found that at first I was silently meditating to the song and felt very much at peace, however when I sing with her I feel the sensation of peace even deeper. I do not fully understand kirtan but the music has always resonated with me. I find that I am centered and calm as I make the song part of a daily practice. It is from this peace that I notice my work become more detailed and intricate.
This weekend I started on a hand painted jewelry box with zentangle-like doodles. The design is still in progress.
Do you meditate as a practice? If so, how has it helped your creativity?
