Shambhala Art Part III: Creative Process
with Rebekah Younger
June 1 / 9:00 AM - June 2 / 6:00 PM
There is such a thing as unconditional expression that does not come from self or other. It manifests out of nowhere like mushrooms in a meadow, like hailstones, like thundershowers.
– Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
The creative process can be a form of meditation in action. Artists do this naturally when they are called by a blank piece of paper, an empty stage, an idle instrument, or an unplanted garden, and they allow inspiration to naturally arise out of that space.
If that inspiration is met with mindfulness and awareness, it can go even further, connecting to an unconditional life and energy that others can perceive and experience. This is awakened art.
The creative process is half of the equation; the balance is an awakened viewing process that provides the means to fully perceive what is being communicated.
Please join us for a weekend of mindfulness- based exercises that are designed to work with the creative in everyone.
Prerequisite: Shambhala Art Parts I & II.
Fee: $130 ($130 members) plus $15 for materials.
