We have all seen the research that proves practicing meditation is good for improving both our mental well-being and our physical health.

Reflections on a Michelangelo Quote

“If you knew how much work went into it, you would not call it genius.” It took over two years for one of the most revered artistic geniuses in history to complete his statue of David.
