"Creativity can be seen as a state of natural flow, one that spontaneously and effortlessly gives birth not only to manifest form, but to all experiences of body, energy, and mind. This state
of flow, which has its roots in openness, occurs
only in the absence of hope and fear. It is at once naturally joyful, peaceful, compassionate, expansive, and powerful."
"When you know how to tap fully into this open, creative flow, its beneficial qualities can extend to any area of your life. You can paint more masterful paintings. Your music can have more depth of connection. Your writing can be more genuine and moving. You will be able to solve problems at work, resolve conflicts with loved ones, or even shift your thought patterns with more natural spontaneity. "
- Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche
From the November 2012 Shambhala Sun magazine article, The
Great Perfection of Creativity.
Join us for this opportunity to free yourself from creative obstacles, nurture your capacity for joyful self-expression, and make positive changes in your life.
This four-week online workshop is for anyone who seeks to usher a vision into reality - whether through creative problem solving, personal growth, or bringing creative artistry to a whole new level.
The Tibetan spiritual traditions tell us that unleashing our dynamic creative energy is a matter of recognizing and tapping into the wellspring of creativity that already exists within us. Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will instruct and guide simple meditation practices of body, speech and mind that can help you to:
recognize and clear physical, energetic, and mental obstacles blocking your creative flow
connect with and trust in your innate creative potential
discover the inner strength and confidence that can allow your creativity to naturally blossom
Workshop participants will be encouraged to devote daily time to meditation practice and to pursuing their personal creative process. An online "creative sharing"
forum will permit sharing the fruits of your creative practice, should you wish to do so.
Take this unique opportunity to join Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and an international online community of creative artists-professional and amateur writers, painters, poets, musicians-as well as people who are simply interested in bringing their journey of personal growth to fruition.
