Contemplative Collage
With Joanna Bolek
Saturday, August 20th
1:30 – 4:30 pm

Join Joanna for a delightful afternoon of meditation and spontaneous collage-making.  Through the collage process we will explore the experience of the Five Buddha families, a model of how to develop five kinds of wisdom, in one’s daily life.  Joanna will also introduce the principles of Dharma Art as taught by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Supplies for this journey of discovery will be provided.

Just bring an open heart and inquisitive mind.  In contemplative collage practice you have an opportunity to:

Breathe,
with relaxed non-grasping focus,
look at images without strategy.
Appreciate what comes to mind.
Choose what interests you.
Simply cut, arrange as you please and paste.

Ongoing

  • GROUP MEDITATION: Every Tuesday, 5:30 – 6:30 pm (discussion following until 7 pm)
    Two 20-minute meditations with basic instructions. Fine for both beginners and experienced. Main focus: developing mindfulness of body, feelings and thoughts; learning to observe inner and outer conditions without judgment; cultivating patience and compassion. Followed by a Dharma talk and discussion, with tea. OK to arrive late or leave early.  Suggested donation of $5, but no one turned away for lack of funds.  Location:  20 Mesa Road
  • BODHIMIND BOOK GROUP:  Every other Tuesday (See our calendar for dates.)  The group is currently reading the book Opening the Eye of New Awareness by the Dalai Lama. The discussion begins about 7:10 pm. following Bodhimind Center Tuesday evening meditation. Everyone is welcome to attend. There is no need to have the book or attend every session (although it is helpful to do so).  Since each discussion is open and free flowing, those attending on a regular or sporadic basis are welcome to take an active or nonactive role in the discussion.   Free.  Location:  20 Mesa Road
