About the event

About the Classes:

Join us for The Art of Inner Freedom, a interwoven series of creative exercises guided by Dharma Arts Instructor Delia Mudge coupled with spacious meditation practices led by Lama Justin and various instructors. Come as you are, with any or no level of meditation or artistic skills!

Each week we will be introduced to unique creative exercises and contemplations as a means of integrating practice through somatic expression and art creation. Allowing for a unique form of both creativity, meditation, and ritual giving the practitioner a new framework of discovering one’s innate wisdom, tapping into pith instructions, exploring states of non conceptual knowing, communication, and joy.

This is a time for non goal oriented non traditional practice and spontaneous play as a means of connecting with the concepts of Ati Yoga and meditation through creativity. In this interweaving of dharma and art we establish a nurturing space, inviting joy and the clarity of innate wisdom to arise. By calming the busy mind, the heart can naturally open through our sense perceptions and our relationship to what is within and around us.

Participants come away with a piece of meaningful art that’s frameable or refrigerator worthy, as a trail and visual reminder that you can practice the Art of Inner Freedom in your life!

This Month's Topic:

Exploring the Elements: The Line

Through the elements of Line, Shape, Color, Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space. Simple guidance intends to help you manifest a seemingly complex and unique radial design through the space of a relaxed mind and playful heart, feeling into the elements with no plans.

Materials Needed:

  • Paper (can be recycled) or sketch book, pieces of paper on hand that you can draw and color on.
  • Something to trace or create a large circle 8-10” in diameter (salad size  or dinner plate or compass)
  • Pencil
  • Color media of your choice: color pencils, basic water colors (if so you will need paper that will hold water media or use what you have and explore what happens), markers, crayons ect… From basic art materials found at local stores inexpensively (like Crayola watercolors and supplies) or ask any kids in your life to borrow theirs! Use random office supplies or your finest Art supplies if you have them. Mixing it up through different media is fine!
  • Scissors if you have them.
