An event for all. (Now only on-line participation is possible)

We could safely say there is such a thing as unconditional expression that does not come from self or other. It manifests out of nowhere like mushrooms in a meadow, like hailstones, like thundershowers.

Trungpa Rinpoche, True Perception

The heart is mysterious and communicates itself through our body and in our speech in a precise and yet ungraspable way. Every little muscle in our face and vocal cords is able to carry that message both inwardly to ourselves and outwardly to the world and others around us. When we feel confident and connected in our hearts, our whole body holds itself and moves in an integrated kind of dance that we could never work out or describe. It is all of a piece and we can connect to the essence of that movement, its mood and its message in a direct and satisfying way. This is how openness, clarity and sensitivity express themselves naturally in our experience and our life all the time. 

Lama Shenpen Hookham, 2007

All day long we are both receiving impressions and expressing ourselves. This is art in everyday life. Such communication might be clear and profound or distorted and confused. 

Join us in a hands-on exploration of the whole area of expression, drawing inspiration from Trungpa Rinpoche's teaching and exercises on Dharma Art.
