There is a quiet revolution going on, wherein people are choosing to “live the handmade life.” Rev. Maggie Oman Shannon illustrates that you can "craft the crazy away" through beading and crocheting, candle-making, and collaging.

Crafting Calm: Projects and Practices for Creativity and Contemplation

New from Viva Editions, Crafting Calm: Projects and Practices for Creativity and Contemplation, a D.I.Y. guide to peace of mind, explores crafts and creativity as a spiritual practice providing enormous benefits. Maggie Oman Shannon takes a rich “potpourri approach” that weaves together interviews, historical facts, "Soul Craft" projects for readers, quotations, and suggested resources.

Shannon has facilitated workshops to help others “tap into that deep well within themselves where the waters of creativity, spirituality and personal identity blend and swirl.” Discover the arts of making prayer beads and prayer shawls, creating a Biblical garden, love boxes, mandalas and tiny altars or one of the many other activities to open the creative flow, and help with relaxation.
