Creativity Lab (East): Creativity in Everyday Life

All are welcome. Please note the location.

Join Shambhala Art Teacher Darryl Burnham for Creativity in Everyday Life at the Eagle Rock Shambhala location.

Creativity in everyday life  brings authentic expressions in appreciation of who we are. This realization comes from the discipline of meditation and meditation in action.

Meditation instruction will guide us onto the playground of creative exercises in color and form. The space between the child and adult in us will be explored. We will open a conversation to realize that the creative process is present in our everyday life.

Contemplative Creativity Lab alternates between Westside Shambhala and Eagle Rock Shambhala Center. October’s offering was at Westside Shambhala, November will be in Eagle Rock, etc.  There will also be occasional Labs at the Orange County Shambhala Center. Please see our webpage: http://la.shambhala.org/ongoing-offerings/creativity-lab/

What is Contemplative Creativity Lab? We are a group of meditation and art practitioners and teachers who lead explorations of the Dharma Art teachings of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Every month is different and have included ink and brush, movement, photography and poetry. What links these is the ground of meditation which allows for fresh perception to be in the forefront, rather than trying to make “art”. So, we give meditation instruction and sit for a short time before we move into a meditation-in-activity. Creating from that place of open mind/heart we call “Square One”. Please check it out!

You can see the teacher biographies here  Suggested Reading: True Perception by Chögyam Trungpa.

Suggested donation is $15 – 20. Doors open at 10:30 am for tea and mingling unless otherwise noted. We often go out for a bite afterwards.
