Teacher: Barbara Bash
Barbara Bash is a lover of the alphabet and a calligraphic practitioner of contemplative art with brush, pen, and pencil. Her contact with Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche guided her into a deeper play with the ancient principles of heaven, earth and human in the creative act. She has collaborated with musicians, storytellers, and dancers in fresh forms of visual improvisation. Barbara teaches expressive brush, contemplative handwriting and illustrated journaling widely. She also leads workshops in Nonviolent Communication and monthly Circle Practice online. Being on the Creative Process team at the Authentic Leadership in Action conferences from 2001 - 2013 led to the creation of her big brush events. Barbara has written and illustrated a number of children’s books about the natural world and more recently True Nature : An Illustrated Journal of Four Seasons in Solitude. She lives in the Hudson Valley of New York. For more information about her work, visit her website or her True Nature visual blog.
