Event Details

Cost: Sliding Scale $75 – 200. Code PB1D18.

Art is a universal language that speaks to the six senses, and serves as a gateway to deep awareness and insight.

We will experientially explore our inherent potential for spacious awareness by weaving together music, visual art, textile, and other mediums. There will be periods of sitting, walking in nature, and time for our creative expression. Through mindfulness practices and play, we hope to deepen our awareness of the moment-to-moment ebb and flow of life as it awakens our senses.

We welcome artists, and those who don’t consider themselves artists! Bring your interest, curiosity, love of the Dharma to this day.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own artwork as part of this experiential day.

Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this day for $45.
