Creativity Lab: Fearless Photography with Darryl Burnham

All are welcome. Please note the location.

Contemplative Creativity Lab is back! CCLab alternates between Westside Shambhala and Eagle Rock Shambhala Centers. There will also be occasional Labs at the Orange County Shambhala Center. Please see our webpage:

Fearless photography is about expressing a connection to our way of being.

In the strength, energy, and power realized in reflecting upon our state of being, we find moments of incredible appreciation for who and what we are. What if we bring a camera into those moments and fearlessly record what is happening?

Come, as you are, to the Creativity Lab with your smart phone camera (or any camera, with battery charged) and we will explore with your instructor, Darryl Burnham, the profundity of contemplative photography.

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.

We occasionally offer special All Day Creativity Labs.
