We go through our lives making our marks in so many ways. Here, with brush and ink, how we manifest in the world can be seen directly. We appreciate our minds - and our lives - when we make a true stroke of the moment.

Calligraphy is the most direct form of artistic expression. It calls forth the freshness of each moment - vital, essential and revealing. With Barbara we will first explore the world of making a mark, seeing it directly for what it is, and letting it go. Working with the principles of heaven, earth, and man, participants will execute a series of large brushstrokes, working with the outer experience of these principles, then the inner feelings, and finally the heart, or secret sense.
Moving into the yoga of sound, Steve will lead us in a "call and response" practice of Indian raga singing which reveals the melodic architecture and spiritual roots of this ancient musical tradition. The Sanskrit proverb "The universe hangs on sound" suggests that the right sound, at the right time, in the right place, will synchronize body and mind and bring sanity to the world. Attuned to the time of day, quality of light and awareness of environment we will explore this sonic landscape.
At the end sound and brush will join together in spontaneous grounded play.
