"This isn't a book--it's a beautiful, quiet path into the deep woods of contemplative practice through the medium of the written word. Yes, reading its chapters will delight you. Yes, listening to these two wise women talk quietly about their lives and their writing process is a sweet and effortless reading experience that will make you feel as if you are sitting across from them, a cup of tea in front of you, hearing the measure and lilt of their kindly, honest, voices. But the real crux of this book/path isn't their words--it's yours." - Norman Fischer author Taking Our Places

It can be difficult to create the space for our spiritual lives in a world crowded with distractions. The Pen and the Bell is about how to achieve mindfulness and creative fulfillment in spite of long to-do lists. It's about gaining access to our deeper selves in our writing. With both meditative and writing exercises in each chapter, it will help you awaken your creative soul and find a more rewarding life.
