Daily Meditation as the Key to Spiritual Contentment With Artist Mayumi Oda
There’s a Zen saying: "Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water." No big promises there, but for just a glimpse at what people get out of meditation, we talked with someone who has meditated daily for decades.
Artist Mayumi Oda has an international reputation for exuberant, nature-filled paintings and prints. She lives now in Kealakekua on Hawaiʻi Island, a place she chose for its starry night sky. She offers daily meditation as the key to spiritual contentment.
