The Joy of Expressing Ourselves


By Larry Arasin

Thank you to all who attended the Sunday Social Art Share on June 21and the Art Party on June 26. Both of these events were intended to raise the creative energy at the Shambhala Center. The range of artistic expressions shared this month is truly inspiring. Within the walls of the center there were musical performers, quilt-makers, photographers, poets, and even stand-up comedians.

These events provided the opportunity for sharing sides of ourselves that can go unseen, reminding us of the deep longing we all have for expressing ourselves. I hope these art events were the first of many and that we can continue to create, share, and inspire each other at the center.
