Hello I am Alma, certified teacher of the Cultivating Emotional Balance program, I’m also a contemplative artist and I have a master’s degree in psychology. My blog Peace & Mind is dedicated to people who want to know their mind, transform negative habits into positive ones, have greater emotional and cognitive balance, have tools to better manage their time and their goals, develop their creativity and apply it to live a meaningful life. Sharing emotional balance and mental training methods that come from both the Western Psychology and Eastern Contemplative Traditions.
Art as Meditation
Through our creativity we not only express our emotions, but we also contemplate the world differently. This is what I teach in my Contemplative Art workshops.
Chogyam Trungpa, a great Tibetan master said “The art of meditative experience is a perpetually growing process in which we begin to appreciate our surroundings in life, whatever they may be. Art, from this point of view, is to be able to see the uniqueness of everyday experience.”
Vision for Peace & Mind
I created this site to bring together a community of people interested in training their mind through meditation, psychology and art. With the intention to share tools and resources that I have learned and which have allowed me to live a peaceful, free and contemplative lifestyle. Here you will find tools for the cultivation of emotional and mental balance, developing your creativity, working for the benefit of other beings, and to design a contemplative and balanced lifestyle.
We have a responsibility to work with our minds, developing our potential to be of benefit to humanity. You have that ability!
