Fingerpainting for Advanced Humans

Saturday, May 12 at 1-4pm

Creative Flow Practice using fingerpaints. Chögyam Trungpa’s Dharma Art meets Cy Twombly. In this class we learn to easily shift our internal paradigm to induce pure, authentic expression, tap into our creative flow state, and calm and clear the monkey mind. No creative experience or art supplies required.

Lines of Compassion, Lines of Intuition

Sunday, May 13 at 1-4pm

Brush and Ink Practice allows us to drop into our own personal flow, and fully embody our creative genius. We can experience more clear, subtle, and fearless states of mind, and explore a deep sense of peace, freedom, and a higher state of inspiration and clarity of purpose. No creative experience or art supplies required.
