Art in Everyday Life
March 11th
Led by Anne Saitzyk

Time:  7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.  MST

You are invited to come and experience, or play with, one of Chögyam Trungpa’s favorite activities—object arranging. Drawing on the principles of Heaven, Earth and Humanity, we will explore the process of perception as the foundation of the creative process.

Awareness practice is not just sitting meditation or meditation-in-action alone. It is a unique training practice in how to behave as an inspired human being. That is what is meant by being an artist. 

~ Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, True Perception

Materials: If you’d like to try your hand at this practice, please have a selection of small objects on hand. For example, various coins, natural objects and other simple forms such as cups, balls and sticks. There is no requirement for any particular skill or need to be artistic.

Recordings will be made available to registered participants.

This offering is part of a five-part series. To register for the entire program or other individual pieces, please click here.
