New workshops


Art, Courage & Creativity                 Reservations Required
       "THE SERIES"    NEW!                   
Karen Sedona 
Each session we combine painting with oil pastels with different methods of Self Inquiry in order to expand our awareness and creative receptivity.  This Series explores the connection between making art, and the art of being fully present.  We may draw (literally!) inspiration from these (and more) meditations and techniques:

 "Big Mind" as taught by Genpo Roshi;   "The Work" as taught by Byron Katie;  "The Mandala of Being" as taught by R. Moss;  Lojong & Tonglen (Shantideva - Tibetan Buddhism); and Course of Miracles to name a few.

The Original Workshop

 This workshop is for adults who want to express themselves artistically but who feel unsure of their natural abilities.  We use oil pastels and paper to identify and overcome inhibitions that limit us in a playful, relaxed setting.  All materials are provided.  All you need is an apron or old clothes.  This is a brief, fun hands-on opportunity to explore your feelings through color, and to see how that experience can enrich other aspects of your life.

DATE:              Friday, April 22

TIME:               9:30 am to 12:30 pm (3 hours)

COST:              $65 (plus $15 for supplies)
