Welcome to SusanMcCulley.com where we can move, write, create and shine together.

UPDATE ON BUDDHA CAT PUBLICATION: It's happening, friends! The upcoming publication of my first book, Buddha Cat: Learning Awareness, Presence and Self-Care from a Teacher who Sometimes Barfs on the Bed is getting closer.

The world is full of suffering. These days, we could all use more insight and delight. Especially when the world feels crazy, we need to look for wisdom in unexpected places. My goofy, ridiculous, wise cat, Phoenix, is a perfect example. She has taught me that awareness, presence, and self-care make a positive difference in both our smaller and larger world.

Since I was a girl, reading Charles Schulz's Peanuts books, I've always wanted to make a book. And now I have. It's at the printer now and are scheduled to be finished on August 17. 

So NOW, there are TWO ways you can be part of the Buddha Cat adventure:

Thank you for supporting my art and my dream. I'm excited to spread more insight and delight with your help.

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
— Howard Thurman

Sensation is the source. Whether in movement or stillness, connecting to sensation in the present moment is the source of physical healing and health, mental clarity and insight, and authentic creativity. I create movement experiences, essays and art to inspire you to come alive.

  • Move. Move your body with focus, play, mindfulness and pleasure. I teach movement and mindfulness to people of all levels of experience and fitness.
  • Write. Use your mind to see the world as only you can. I write creative non fiction intrigue, inspire and invite conversation.
  • Create. You are the only you there is. The world needs you. I create art to invoke curiosity and awareness.
The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.
— Neil Gaiman

Dance on. Shine on.
