This book deals with methods of mindful cultivation involving writing, drawing, and moving the whole body. In Buddhism, we call the four mindful emotions of kindness, compassion, joy, and equinamity the Four Immeasurable Mindsets. But these four mindsets are not only for the sake of others. They allow their holders to conquer such poisonous emotions as anger, hate, intimidation, and jealousy. The Four Immeasurable Mindsets, therefore, are about taking care of one's own self. Most of the books on cultivating the Mindsets are based on "still" cultivations like meditation, but this book features art therapy and somatics toward realizing Buddhist ideals. By writing, drawing, and moving the whole body, practitioners who have trouble concentrating or sitting still for long periods will get to enjoy the benefits of meditation and cultivation.
