This podcast is filled with BIG, fascinating ideas about the intersection of creativity and spirit. How do you find your own personal meaning in making things? Can art or craft (or any other creative pursuit) actually become a spiritual practice? How can creative work be spiritual and exist alongside your existing spiritual beliefs?
We have an excellent guide through all these questions this week: Bridget Benton is a mixed-media artist and a teacher who specializes in just this subject. Her book, The Creative Conversation, is based on classes she’s been teaching for years. She helps creative people uncover the ways that making things feeds their souls – and how regular making can become an important path to staying grounded and understanding your place in the world.
