Using a Scrapbook as an aid to Contemplation

Create a collection of personally meaningful images, quotes, prayers and poems. Place them in a scrapbook. This action will serve as your inspiration guide, and you can refer to it when you need a little push. Feel free to add and remove from it as you wish; it can represent an ever- evolving record of what is interesting and significant to you.

Use this scrapbook as a reference to engage in open-ended and self-reflective creative work. Sit silently to relax and focus your mind. Gently breathe in and gently breathe out. After a few minutes, refer to your scrapbook. Browse it quietly for a few minutes, lingering over the images you have collected. You may find that a question or response arises naturally in your mind.
