In Touch with Bodhisattvas: A Weekly Art Practice Series – October
with Jody Hojin Kimmel, Sensei
October 2 - 30, 2020
For art practice during these three months we will focus on learning, reflecting, embodying and embracing the qualities of Bodhisattvas and then bringing to life in expression the energy that we receive. In this way, we can call in these qualities as we face our lives and what we may encounter.
Art practice sessions will take place on Zoom each week where the Bodhisattva will be introduced before we enter into expressive work.
Each Friday of October, except sesshin week, from 10:30am-12pm.
Participate in the series or come for one or more session. Drop-ins welcome; not necessary to be part of all sessions.
Your registration confirmation will include a link to the Zoom session.
Donations are appreciated at this time.
