Shambhala Center of Portland presents:
Shambhala Art introduces meditation and awareness practices as a way to experience the source of every individual's inherent creativity in all aspects of our lives and our world. This can lead us to a state of being from which genuine expression may arise. This program is not just for artists, but is for anyone wanting to experience "art in everyday life".
Part 1: Coming to Your Senses: Sensory exercises, meditation and awareness practices are introduced as a way to connect more fully with ourselves and our world. Out of this our mind, body, and environment begin to synchronize which leads us to a state of being from which genuine expression may arise.
Part 2: Seeing Things as They Are: Through awareness practices we come to see things as they are as opposed to how we think or imagine they are. Seeing the difference between our concepts and our direct experience empowers and opens our creative and viewing processes.
