For Philippe Filliot, meditation is the vital source concealed within all forms of creativity. Through the quality of his attention, the individual who meditates is capable of transfiguring all that he is through a single undertaking, whether this be artistic creation of daily activity. Neither an instructional guide on how to meditate, nor a theoretical treatise, this book explores the relationship between meditation and creation. Meditation is a creative experience which immerses us into the very heart of existence, an awakening of the senses of inner life. Art is a meditative experience, meditation made action.
