This weekend program will consist of some meditation and various exercises such as collage, poetry, and object arrangement. Shambhala Art is a hands-on approach to creativity.
The creative process has more to do with perception than talent. Meditation helps this process by clarifying our perceptions, relaxing our relentless self-dialoguing, and revealing the source of creativity.

Be sure to join us for the introductory presentation on Shambhala Art on Friday September 8, 7:00pm-9:30pm.
For more information about Shambhala Art, visit the Shambhala Art website. Also see the most recent Shambhala Art Newsletter for an article by Stéphane Bédard, If Sun Meets Wind, on the creative process.

A senior Shambhala Art Teacher in the international Shambhala Buddhist Community, he teaches Shambhala Art Workshops, the Way of Shambhala, and holds the title of Kalapa Ikebana Master Instructor. He lives in Montreal, and regularly travels to teach, including to Nova Scotia, where he has a number of dedicated students.
