Spirituality and Creative Practice: Zen drawing

May 15 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm


This session is inspired by Frederick Franck whose spiritual practice is drawing. You need no special equipment, just anything that will make a mark on some paper (pencil, pen, crayon, charcoal, paintbrush, etc.) You will also need something firm to rest your paper on maybe cardboard, especially if you draw outside.

Drawing is about looking very carefully so that you see and understand the essential nature of what you study. Franck takes this further, suggesting that when we draw we immerse ourselves in that which we draw so that we become part of it and lose ourselves in the process. It is part of seeing with wonder and excitement, seeing with the heart, getting to the truth rather than producing a pretty picture; a form of meditation.
