"It is a time of shift, of awakening, new challenges, greater complexity in every dimension of daily life. The Artist's Rule is a treasure for those of us who long to live a rich inner life, to be fully human and creative members of a creative Universe, to give expression to what is moving within us--to write, paint, make music, and dance. Christine frames her exploration in monastic wisdom, but in our present context where the whole world is our monastery. The inner guide of each of us is thoroughly welcomed and nourished throughout the chapters--in explorations, guided imagery, mystical insight, poetry, music, reflections, inspiration, practices of creativity, ritual--as we travel today's call to creativity and contemplation." --Mary Southard, C.S.J.,Artist/Illustrator for The Cosmic Dance: An Invitation to Experience Our Oneness
"Graciously offered, wisely conceived, carefully crafted, The Artist's Rule leads the reader ever more deeply into practices that recover the awareness that contemplation and creativity spring from the same Source. This work, grounded in Benedictine spirituality, offers us ways to rediscover the sacred art of living and serving, following the Spirit's lead and awakening to the artist's palette of our daily lives." --Mary C. Earle, Author of The Desert Mothers: Spiritual Practices from the Women of the Wilderness and Days of Grace: Meditations and Practices for Living with Illness
