“All artists, whether they know it or not create from a place of inner stillness, a place of no mind.” 

~ Eckhart Tolle

 

It is challenging to be still, and yet a quiet mind and body is essential to emotional freedom. A quiet mind reprograms our biology for calm. When we are calm our body stimulates endorphins (natural painkillers), serotonin ( a natural antidepressant), and dopamine ( a hormone that helps us feel good).
