Author Oman Shannon, the spiritual director of a Unity Church, explores crafts and creativity as a lifelong practice with enormous physical, emotional and spiritual benefits. And by knitting love and hope into every stitch, handicrafts help form new friendships and community. From making a desktop shrine or mini-Zen garden, to stringing intention beads and painting personal flags, Crafting Calm is an essential tool for making mindfulness. Maggie Oman Shannon was recently on The Soul Directed Life, discussing the benefits of crafting for peace of mind.
