Omega Institute Bring More Mindfulness to Your Writing
Writing is a practice that requires both focus and imagination. Writers must paint details on the page that translate abstract ideas from their mind into readable stories and content. Poet Robert Bly once said, “If we want to create art we have to stitch together the inner world and the outer world.” Mindfulness, which is defined as paying attention to our moment-to-moment experience with nonjudgmental awareness, can do just that.

An Interview with Alex Grey and Allyson Grey, Part 1
Omega: How do you describe visionary art to someone who encounters it for the first time? Alex and Allyson: The visionary artist’s mission is to make the soul perceptible.
