Change happens and staying the same happens.  We can use questions to look deeper into our life.

Sensho Wagg and I connected a month or two ago after a mutual connection showed me some of Sensho’s art which you will find below accompanied by some of her thoughts. After learning more about Sensho, I suggested we have a Conversation on the Women.Words.Wisdom. Podcast which was rich in insight about trauma and transformation. You can listen to our talk below or on Apple Podcast

In the quiet of our quarantine/lockdown, questions about the meaning of life come up:
How did this happen?
Why me?
What’s coming next?
What is the meaning of all of these changes in the world?
Change happens and staying the same happens.  We can use questions to look deeper into our life.
Here are a few “meals” to stir us up right now.  We could call this collection of meals, “Feeding Mind.”

Let’s eat.

Eat the universe in one bite.

Does this satisfy your hunger?


Ready for dessert?

Since the age of 50, Sensho Wagg’s life has been a study of transformation from trauma.  Sensho uses the affect her trauma has had on her to learn, grow and change, the way everyone uses the challenges they encounter. Sensho’s own life was transformed by coming face to face with previously suppressed memories of her own trauma.  The memories came back to her while she was living at a Zen Buddhist Monastery, and her transformation journey began.

Sensho is an artist of multiple mediums, practicing Buddhist, and Certified Transformation Coach.

Sensho is currently working on a book of photographed meals which were inspired by the questions raised by the great Zen Master Eihei Dogen in his Abbot’s talk, Painting of a Rice Cake in 1242 AD.  He asked, “Do painted rice cakes satisfy hunger?”  And his answer was “No, of course not.  And Yes, painted rice cakes do satisfy hunger.” 

 Sensho is based in New York and you can learn more about her work here.
