Shambhala Art Part 3: The Creative Process – Heaven / Earth / Human – London

with Claire van Rhyn

Friday 25 – Sunday 27 May

Shambhala Art’s purpose is to discover the source of the creative process and the product we call art, from the viewpoint of a meditative discipline. The Shambhala Art teachings are about the paradox between discipline and play; the universal nature of creativity and communication. The programme experientially explore what it means to see things as they are, as well as how to uncover the source of inspiration, its manifestation, and how it can inform our daily practice of connecting to the vividness of our world.

The Shambhala Art Programme is taught in five parts. This weekend will offer the third part: Part Three: Heaven, Earth and Human –The Creative Process
Facing a blank piece of paper, an empty stage, an idle instrument, an unplanted garden, we welcome the open space of not knowing — the Heaven principle. Out of that space, inspiration arises and we take the leap, make the mark,
and begin to create, joining Heaven and Earth. Bringing awareness and heart to the process is the Human principle. Part Three explores these ancient aesthetic principles by doing calligraphies and doing object arrangements.

Please note that you need to have completed Part 1 and 2 of the Shambhala Art programme to participate in Part 3.
