Arts at Aryaloka

Appreciation and practice of the arts is seen within the Triratna Buddhist Community as an important means of engaging the emotions in the spiritual life and of making a bridge between traditional Buddhism and Western culture. Many of our sangha members make their living in the arts or have a strong creative talent. The arts bring richness and depth to our community and a personal connection with our own practice.

Aryaloka offers many opportunities to engage in creative pursuits through classes, retreats and workshops. We also have frequent arts events – musical performances, art showings, and more – through our Arts at Aryaloka programming. Arts events are open to all and always promise to be lively and elevating.

This monthly informal drawing group grew out of a Drawing and Meditation Workshop and it’s a great way to meet up with other artistic spiritual friends.

We meet from 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. at Akashaloka (the building behind the Aryaloka domes).

Bring your own art supplies. While a simple pencil and drawing pad is enough, feel free to bring anything else you may have. Sign-ups not necessary and we will have a Dana bowl for donations. For more information or any questions e-mail Eric Ebbeson at ericsueebbeson@comcast.net

Dates for the drawing group are August 3, November 23, and December 21.

We are collecting non-perishable food items, personal care/cleaning products, or warm clothing items. Your generosity makes such a difference in many people’s lives! We thank you for your past donations and encourage you to continue. With gratitude, the Generosity Kula.
