My path is to assist individuals in accessing their creativity and life-vision. To do this, I teach contemplative practice (sitting meditation, tai chi, working with color, etc) and nature-based contemplative practice. I teach a 'Writer and Contemplative Practice' retreat at the GilChrist retreat center as well as a nature & mysticism retreat. I also teach these retreats in Northern Michigan in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park. Open to all who want to quest for deep vision with the assistance of the natural world. My work pertains to all the arts.

A multi-disciplinarily art & design studio creating objects + environments through the decorative arts – green design, personalized custom furniture/cabinetry, home furnishings, decorative finishes, materials and color consulting, interior and graphic design, and fine art prints and sculpture. Reclaim a piece of Michigan’s environmental legacy created by the Emerald Ash Borer with fine picture frames and furniture by Urban Ashes. Designer, Paul M. Hickman’s new line of frames and furniture, Urban Ashes, is hand-crafted with transitional/disabled labor in Michigan from Michigan urban wood, salvaged from local Ash and other trees. These are trees that grew on our streets, in our yards, in our parks and in other urban areas. The entire Urban Ashes collection is hand-finished with petroleum-free finishes often highlighting the unique character of the Ash and other urban woods used in these frames.
