No experience or artistic talent required.     


$5-10 suggested donation.


Among other elements we will include in our monthly gathering:


 




  • Discussions on Chogyam Trungpa’s teachings on dharma art, including how dharma art relates to our own creative process, appreciation of art, and general perception of the world




  • Holding the paradox of form and freedom, structure and spontaneity




  • Exploring the relationship of meditation to the creative process




  • Contemplating obstacles to creativity (such as writer’s block) and how we relate to such obstacles as they arise




  • Sharing how and where we find inspiration and how it can lead to creative expression




  • Optional offerings: original exhibitions, performances, presentations




  • Community salons every few months




 


We look forward to seeing you the final Friday evening of the month at 7:00PM!
