An Exploration of Dharma Art and Enlightened Society (in the U District)

March 9 / 12:00 PM - March 9 / 6:00 PM

At this "Mandala Feast Offering", hosted by Matt Bryan and Noe Khalfa, we will explore how we manifest in our society with a sense of nobility and grace. This includes how we interact with each other, how we engage in the act of creation in a genuine and open way, and our relationship to serving and being served by others.

Each person will participate in:

  • An art workshop: ikebana flower arranging, painting, grand mobile construction...

  • A performing art workshop: dance, drama, instrumental...

  • A food preparation workshop: tea, sushi...

  • A workshop costuming others and getting costumed

  • A workshop contemplating and doing activities in how we treat ourselves and others in society.

The workshops will start at 12:00 PM and end at 5:00 PM, followed by the feast. By the time the feast begins, we will be dressed, have a beautifully decorated and arranged space, have delightful entertainment, dazzling food, and open minds ready to unfold. What happens therein is a surprise.

Cost: $15 advance tickets online, or $20 at the door.

Prerequisites: None (open to everyone).
