Langer, Ellen J. On Becoming An Artist – Reinventing Yourself Through Mindful Creativity, 2005.

In her most recent book, Langer recaps some of her scientific work on mindfulness, then goes on to talk at length about how taking up painting has changed her life. She says that she has found three general rewards from engaging in mindful creativity:

  • The sheer joy that the activity brings her, which is something that must be experienced to be understood;
  • Discovering that painting is a window into herself; and
  • Learning to use painting as a “two-way interpersonal mirror,” so that she learns about others as she paints and shares her work with them.
