Shambhala Art Part III: The Creative Process with Judy Bond and Jen Parde

December 14 / 7:30 PM - December 16 / 5:00 PM

The creative process can be a form of meditation-in-action when it begins with coming to our senses and arriving at “square one.” We do this naturally when we unconditionally face a blank piece of paper, an empty stage, an idle instrument, or an unplanted garden and allow inspiration to naturally arise out of that space. The creative process is only half of the equation; the balance is an awakened viewing process that provides the means to fully perceive what is being communicated.

Judy Bond is a longtime student of Chogyam Trungpa, the founder of the Shambhala Art Program, and his son and current lineage holder, Sakyong Mipham.  She is a senior Shambhala Art teacher; Sogetsu School - trained Ikebana Instructor; a meditation instructor; and a Way of Shambhala teacher- in-training.  She is a science educator by profession. 


In addition to coordinating and teaching Shambhala Art programs, Jennifer Parde is a full-time singer-writer, vocalist, pianist and music teacher.  As a music teacher, Jennifer emphasizes a combination of mindfulness, body-based awareness and playful musical creativity.  In addition to her musical and teaching pursuits, Jennifer also works part-time as a freelance astrologer and energy healer.
