Zen CREATIVITY AND HEALING
With Alok Hsu Kwang-han
Sedona Arts Center, Oct. 7 & 8, 2017, 8 am to 5 pm
Master calligrapher Alok Hsu Kwang-han will guide and inspire you to rest in the spaciousness of your being, to be comfortable and intimate with not knowing, and to allow your brush to dance from emptiness. It will become obvious to you this is a healing journey as well as a creativity workshop!
You may be asked to paint your heart’s longing, the sound of silence, the Zen Koan, “My house burnt down, I can see the moon!” or Rumi’s poem, “God has only four words: come dance with me!” Successive paintings later, you come to realize “I am the art!” And the Little Me that has taken up so much space in your life is not necessary.
No previous experience with Zen or painting is needed. Better to come with “beginner’s mind.”
Workshop begins each day at 8:00 am. Art supplies are provided, including a set of calligraphy brushes that you keep.
Required viewing: “Moving from Emptiness: The Life and Art of a Zen Dude”
