This Present Moment
- An Art Therapy Journal -
fully revised and expanded
Mandalas, Meditations and Musings in Mindfulness
This Present Moment contains heartfelt meditations on 20 important life themes, including Love, Hope, Courage, Creativity and Resilience, to give peace and focus through contemplation and colouring.
This unique book offers a place of peace amidst life's more difficult moments.
With a distinctly 'hopeful' flavour, Meg charts the pivotal moments that reflect each of the themes over the last ten years of living with cancer.
Featuring beautifully hand-drawn mandalas by Grace Cuell.
This Present Moment is for anyone facing a difficult diagnosis, a difficult relationship or any difficult situation. It is both a “how to” for navigating a path through the darkness and a wakeup call to jump into life.
What people are saying;
"Huge congratulations on getting your second book up! That's great, and will help many. As I mentioned at the time, it's what you have written next to Grace's beautiful mandalas that makes your book standout. Sharing the wisdom you've gained and the inspiration of others makes it utterly unique."
- Anna Taylor, Artist
"Meg...has been forced by recurrent illness and circumstances to face more than any of us would wish. Don't turn away, thinking that Meg is the kind of hero most of us couldn't be. Out of her suffering and fear and the immense intimacies and even the weird glorious moments of illness, she has insights to benefit us all."
- Stephanie Dowrick, Writer, Retreat leader, Spiritual teacher
"What a treasure. What a comfort. What a balm!"
- Catherine Deveny, Writer, Comedian and Public Speaker
"Like six weeks of therapy without having to talk to a soul."
- Maureen Hansen, Artist, Musician and Art Therapist
"While we cannot choose our circumstances, we can choose how we deal with them. This Present Moment: An Art Therapy Journal would make a perfect gift for anyone; especially those diagnosed with ill-health or working through difficult situations."
- Natasha Rae, General Operations Manager, Relationships Australia (Qld)
"This Present Moment is filled with sound psychology and spiritual guidance."
