Welcome to Moving Towards Peace, or MTP for short.

MTP is a blog published by me, C.E. Lowman, that is intended to be a source of inspiration and support for individuals pursuing spirituality, self-help, yoga, meditation, healing, and the like. In other words, it's for people who are "working on themselves" or "walking the path," trying to lessen the struggle in their lives and discover greater purpose, flow, and abiding fulfillment.

By far the best way to experience and be benefited by this blog is to have the posts delivered to you via email. This makes the experience more personal and convenient. To have the articles delivered to your inbox, you can sign up for free here or scroll to the bottom of this page and fill out the form. 

If there is some particular topic, question, issue or situation you would like me to address, you can submit a request via the Contact page (and be sure to note you would like it addressed).

Topics Covered


The image to consider is a thousand-petaled lotus. One central source, numerous emanations.

Topics covered here are fairly "random" and tend to jump around. However, they all revolve around certain interrelated themes that include:

  • Harmony within and without

  • Subconscious patterns and habits

  • Presence, Being vs. Doing

  • Effortlessness

  • Ego destruction (yoga)

  • Virtue

  • Relationships

Posting Schedule

I do my best to have something new for you every Wednesday and Sunday. At the same time, depending on my travel schedule and/or general mood, I may miss that mark. If you feel too much time has passed, kindly nudge me. :)

How to Get Started 

As opposed to directing you to a specific list of older posts, I recommend getting started where you are, i.e., start following along with the newest ones that come in.

So many speak to me at just the right time.
