Creativity Lab (West): A Story, a Story – Let it Come, Let it Go

Join Shambhala Art Teacher Angela Lloyd, MFA for our November Creativity Lab: A Story, a Story – Let it Come, Let it Go

All are welcome. Please note the location.

This workshop is designed to demonstrate how stories create and support a path of inquiry – setting the stage for spontaneous expression.

A contemplative approach, the hands-on practice demonstrates how stories take shape during the telling – thus empowering the listener/teller to have confidence in their abilities

Contemplative Creativity Lab 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: 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.
