An Essay About My Journey

“My journey toward writing the Arte of Now: Practice of Immediacy in the Arts© is a weaving of many years of Zen training, a decade of studying with female shamans, art, and my deep trust of the great unknown. These threads wove together when I got lost while camping in the desert with my family several years ago……..Getting lost, and finding my way, informed me deeply.  It was one of those rare experiences that is so direct there is no time to wonder, no time to give meaning to a situation — just the raw immediacy of now…….. Writing a book about the practice of immediacy in the arts was like being called to participate in a dance with steps I didn’t know and yet I knew the steps once I started writing.”
