Is contemporary art undermining the sacred roots of human culture'? Is art meant for a ble purpose, greater self-kwledge, and entry to a deeper dimension of life? In sharp, streetwise language, this artist, a skateboarding punk meditator, presents practical ways serious artists can use their lives to develop greater clarity, dignity, generosity, and insight. He discusses: How generosity transforms the artist's natural isolation; How creative people subconsciously sabotage their success; How unrecognised self-indulgence obstructs creativity; How artists can use meditation to deepen insight and creativity; Shamanistic and sacred visionary traditions as sources of creative power; The consequences of manipulating creativity.
