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.
