Shambhala Sunday Gathering—The Moving Line: Walking a Calligraphic Path

Sunday Gatherings are LIVE every week at 3:00 p.m. EST

Donations are welcome!


Life sometimes presents a clear path. For Barbara Bash it was the alphabet. These were the shapes that drew her in and opened up her creative expression. Come hear about the many forms this path took, the ways it mixed with Buddhism and Chögyam Trungpa, and how it continues to evolve in her life. Some calligraphic expression may occur on the spot!
