Live Space

with David Schneider
March 21 / 9:30 AM - March 22 / 5:00 PM

Open to all!

Certain kinds of psycho-physical space support inspiration and the creation of art, especially dharma art. The same thing could be said more generally: particular psycho-physical spaces help us live in a mindful, brave, authentic way. But which kinds of spaces are these? How can one find them? Create them? Enter them?


This weekend program will draw on exercises and teachings from the Dharma Art tradition. The aim is to open and investigate space - physical, mental, emotional space, sonic, visual, sensual space; personal and social space - as well as the creative activities that (can) happen there. Where do you live?


Open to all.



Dharma Art teacher David Schneider has practiced calligraphy since 1970, specializing in the Sanskrit alphabet Siddham. He is the author of two biographies: Street Zen, The Life & Work of Issan Dorsey; and Crowded by Beauty, The Life and Zen of Poet Philip Whalen. He served as an Acharya from 1996-2019.
