In this collection of short, highly readable essays Peter Clothier explores his past and present in the effort to discern which parts of his life are essential and which might be left behind. Within the framework of an active Buddhist meditation practice, Mind Work is an authentic search for the creative core through a process of uncompromising self-examination, conducted in the belief that the closer we come to core of the individual “self,” the more we discover about our shared humanity, and the more we open ourselves up to creative inspiration.
