Are there any consistent activities or rituals you do to maintain a sense of inner peace? Silence and solitude – when applied consistently can give you more than inner peace.
When you are in an emotional rut, what are your go to ways to bring yourself out of that feeling? I seek perspective first, and if that doesn’t work, I invoke my inner coach for some pep talk. It works every time.
Before beginning a creative process, what type of preparation do you normally undertake? Visualization, it helps me to shape my creative vision down to the last detail.
Describe a time you underwent a particularly stressful situation and what measures you took to move through that process. Faith can move mountains and so does patience and so does breathing and so does taking it one day at a time – all the while maintaining hope and the belief that things have a way of working out. Always.
Is there a particular genre of music that brings you calm? New Age/World beats, chill out music. Deva Premal – her voice is magic.
What is the most inspiring book you have ever read? Women Who Run With the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estés.
Do you meditate? If so, how did you learn and what methods do you use often? Yes, I do meditate. I have for many years and my breath is the method that helps me reach a deep state of mind.
Who is the most inspirational person you have ever met, and what did they reveal to you that never left you? A guru once told me in my twenties: ‘Never bow down to anyone but God.” In other words, never compromise your self-worth for anyone or anything other than Spirit. All these years later, it remains a guiding principle on my journey.
