The Divine Body at Play
A Buddha is the ultimate artist. Their creations are continuous, spontaneous, compassionate and filled with deep joy. This unique series of classes offers spiritually-minded people comprehensive and powerful tools, from authentic Buddhist and Yogic traditions, to release and realize the creative forces in their lives.
Thank you to our teachers Mira Kingsley and Brian Reid for a wonderful weekend workshop on living life as a work of art.
