The Expansiveness of Enrique Martínez Celaya

I’ve been a fan of Krista Tippet’s rich and eclectic podcast, On Being since I first heard her now legendary interview with John O’Donohue. Her interviewing style is so nuanced and skillful that whoever she is in dialogue with feels like an intimate friend. It’s a masterful touch that few journalists can match.

Most recently, I revelled in her robust conversation with Enrique Martínez Celaya. Titled the Whisper of the Order of Things, it’s a shimmering discourse between two fine minded people.

His work is new to me and I’m ordering On Art and Mindfulness from Nebraska Press next week. From their page:

About the Book

In On Art and Mindfulness, world-renowned artist and celebrated teacher Enrique Martínez Celaya shares his views and advice on the art-making process, the development of a practice, the management of obstacles, and the day-to-day choices we must make in order to remain creative and honest. Drawn from the actual sold-out workshops that Martínez Celaya taught over nine years at the venerable Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass, Colorado, these concise teachings are relevant not only to artists but to anyone wishing to live a mindful, productive life.
