Shambhala Art Part One & Two
with Tom Semmes
The Shambhala Art teachings are a path of learning to see clearly so we can express ourselves genuinely. Through a series of talks, discussions, and in-depth exercises, this course enriches our understanding of meditation practice and can focus our efforts in any creative field.
Saturday, April 27 - Part One explores the process of perception, highlighting both its clarity and obscurations. We learn to rest in “square one,” a state of mindfulness and awareness where our mind, body, and environment are synchronized and self-expression can transform into pure-expression.
Sunday, April 28 - Part Two looks at the difference between seeing things as they are as opposed to how we think or imagine they are. We discover that everything has a felt presence to it as well as a thought sense that we bring to it. How these two ways of ‘knowing’ work together can empower or obstruct our creative and viewing processes.
The Shambhala Art classes are relevant to both artists and non-artists alike. No special talents or prerequisites are necessary except an open mind and an interest in meditation and/or art.
