The Zen of Seeing

Fredrick Franck, in his book The Zen of Seeing, talks about approaching drawing from a contemplative point of view. “What I have not drawn I have never really seen,” he says. “Once you start drawing the ordinary thing from the inside out you realize how extraordinary it is, sheer miracle.” He likens drawing in this manner to a spiritual practice or discipline. I view it as a way of life—don’t allow yourself to be swayed or thrown off course by external appearances, instead learn to identify and respond to the inner truth.

The Zen of Seeing method, like the I Create What I Believe! (ICWIB!) Program, endorsed by Dr. Bruce Lipton and based on his research, is a way to learn how to go inward, become fully present in the moment, and connect more deeply with life and yourself.

With this in mind, I invite you to explore some of the ICWIB art activities and videos for FREE.
