World Peace Meditation with Spiritual Art
Envisioning a World at Peace
Using the neo-impressionist style of pointillism, tiny dots of color create rich and vibrant imagery; each stroke of the brush holds a prayer of compassion. Each dot is offered as a jeweled universe, a prayer to end suffering in the world.
This painting is an invitation to envision together a world motivated by Compassion and Loving Kindness as we actively pave a path to Peace.
Please take a moment & envision with me.
Breathe into your heart
Center your attention in your heart. Relax into this moment. Offer your presence to the possibility of a world motivated by Compassion and Loving Kindness.
Breathe deeply into your heart.
Feel your heart soften.
As it softens, allow it to open.
Take two more deep breaths.
Set your intention for this moment.
What is your vision of a world at Peace?
What would our world feel like? Look like? Sound like?
Who are you in this new world?
See with your minds eye.
Imagine each dot represents the treasures of our Earth: flowers and stones, water and air, fruits and nuts, lush and abundant, expanding endlessly. Maybe you love fashion, technology or art and architecture; whatever is beautiful to you makes a beautiful offering. Envision all of space filling with beauty and abundance, each dot coming alive with vibration.
With your heart open, add your prayers and wishes to your vision of a world at peace.
Stepping into the next moment, hearts open, we give life to new possibilities. Small acts, consciously chosen set change in motion.
May we know Peace, Peace in our hearts, Peace in our world.
So excited to share the news!
Pictured here, this handcrafted sterling silver pendant with a chain was sculpted and cast in the vortexes of Sedona
In a moment of quiet reflection, this original design inspired a small sketch, soon it became a painting, a poem, and a pendant. I welcomed them, each a reminder to stay … Open to Life.

“Amitabha Buddha: Red Buddha of Infinite Light”
Currently on display at L’Auberge de Sedona with Goldenstein Gallery. Originally commissioned to grace the heart center of the Amitabha Enlightenment Stupa in Sedona, AZ, the first in the edition is part of this magnificent monument to peace and healing.The stupa is an ancient form of sacred architecture. They date back to the time of the Buddha 2600 years ago. Rare in the West, these sacred monuments are a part of the landscape in the East where Buddhism originally took root and flourished. A stupa is believed to be the living presence of the Enlightened Mind, embodying the qualities of the Buddha’s wisdom and compassion. Why is this Buddha called Amitabha?” “The brilliance of his light is measureless, illuminating the lands of the ten directions without obstruction.”Amitabha is a Sanskrit word that literally means, boundless light and boundless life. Images of the Buddha are considered to be a radiant display of the pure qualities of the Enlightened Mind, qualities of Wisdom, Compassion, Loving Kindness and Joy May we know Peace … Peace in our Hearts, Peace in our World.

Find what moves you and let those be the things you build your life on.
I have never found life to be ‘easy.’ Yet, over time, I have found a sanctuary of stillness within. A place where respite can be found. A peaceful place within my heart where there is trust, a knowledge of our deep, inherent connection to the Divine. As a nun and a student on the Tibetan Buddhist path, I was able to sink deeply into cultivating a profound awareness of this connection. When I am listening, everything I need to know is there.
The article below is from an early issue of Sedona Monthly magazine. In it, I share a bit of my story. May you find something to inspire your journey.
May all beings know Peace, Peace in our hearts, Peace in our minds.
Thank you for sharing a moment with me.
