Contemplative ArtsMeditation practice synchronizes the mind and body, bringing us into the present moment, awake and aware of our sense perceptions and our environment.  From that open space, a gesture can arise: a word, a thought, a stroke, a genuine expression informed by our awakened state.

Through exercises and discussion we will examine creating, not as product or process, but as a natural state of being that arises as we connect with our felt sense of things as they are.  Rebekah Younger will lead this day of exploration into the power of creating as meditation, starting from Square One. Open to all -  “non-artists” as well as “artists.”

This workshop is an abbreviated introduction to the larger 5 part series known as Shambhala Art™ based on the Dharma Art teachings of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Cost includes a $5 materials fee. Please join us for this very special opportunity on Saturday, February 23, 10 am – 4pm. 

At Aryaloka, we strive to make our programs available to everyone regardless of their financial circumstances. Our fee structure allows you to pay according to your means. The Sustaining price is for people comfortably paying their rent or mortgage, and who can afford the occasional meal out and movie. The Sustaining price level also helps Aryaloka offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend. Any payment above this price is a tax-deductible donation. Mid-Level prices are for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of Aryaloka’s operating costs. The Base-Level price is for those without an income or with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge. Those whose circumstances are not included above can call the office to arrange alternate pricing.
