Laboratorio

When I recall the words of Lao Tzu: “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage,” I am moved to stillness, and I feel solid and whole. Below are descriptions of some play-shops, which I hope bring you to your solidity.

Creative Gratitude

This 3-hour interactive and creative lab is a profound process that integrates you and your higher purpose, while you access the beauty in your essential gratitude and radiate it to the world.

Creativity as a Unique
Human Choice & Destiny

This 3-hour lab includes the viewing of a short film titled Androgyne, which is a story of an artist and her relationship with her art, wherein she unravels the purpose of art to be a process that reminds us of our divinity and leads us in our evolution. After the viewing is a discussion on the purpose of art and beauty and an experiential process session to access your creative force and apply it in your life as you would choose. It is a uniquely moving experience.

“True nature is always elusive, Only the heart of no-heart can grasp-it. Up in the mountain, the burning jade stays brilliant. And in the roaring furnace, lotus blossoms keep their fragrance.” ~ Ngo An, Korea (circa 1090) Source: Mind Moon Circle Quarterly, Summer 1984
