SECOND SATURDAY OF THE MONTH: Creativity Lab (11am – 1pm): exploring creative processes that arises from meditative space. We are a group of art and meditation practitioners and teachers who want to play with the Dharma Art teachings of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and to share it with others. To let go of concepts about “Art” and collaborate. Not primarily to make stuff, but to engage each other and develop a ground of mutual trust born of curiosity, willingness to be a fool, and trust in the process of coming back to the present moment. To see where it goes. Please join us! la.shambhala.org/ongoing-offerings/creativity-lab/
