“Morning altars” are colorful mandalas that combine nature, art, and meditation. These stunning pieces of art are a peaceful and creative avenue to express gratitude for nature, to practice mindfulness, and to add meaning to daily life.
In his new book, Morning Altars: A 7-Step Practice to Nourish Your Spirit through Nature, Art, and Ritual, author Day Schildkret guides readers through the creation of morning altars, a seven-step process that includes wondering and wandering, place meditation, clearing space, creating, gifting, walking away, and sharing his art with others.
Day joins Dr. Bond to share insights from his book, as well as how incorporating the natural world into the everyday encourages positive well-being, even with the simplest of the earth’s gifts.
