…and the water flowed…

Standard

Yet another small group gathered over the weekend to participate in a playful workshop; bursting with life, color, succulent writing and insight. We were only occasionally interrupted by sounds of motorbikes and a mud-mixing machine in the nearby rice field. Otherwise, a peaceful and heart-opening time was had by all 🙂

Thank you all for joining in such a fluid creative process – from Ubud, Nyuh Kuning and Sanur!

Butterfly Bridge Arts will be on hiatus for a couple of months.. stay tuned for upcoming work/playshops!

~ Drinking from the Well ~

Standard
July 22, 2012
2-5 p.m.
Villa di Sawah (Felice’s House), Singakerta*
Ubud, Bali, Indonesia
Sure, we drink spring (or holy) water from a well. But do we know how to ‘drink’ creatively from the well of love, beauty, compassion, joy, laughter, sorrow and pain? How do we nourish ourselves from the bounty of wellness that beckons?Come and explore and uncover the treasures that lie deep inside each of us. If we dig and search, contemplate, share and use our imagination, there is a vast landscape waiting to be discovered within ourselves.

This creativity workshop will combine elements of writing, movement, meditation, visualization and hands-on art project(s). No previous arts-related experience is required! All you need is a desire to join others in releasing your creative spirit, to find an expressive outlet for yourself.

Donation (suggested 50-100k) will be appreciated to cover the cost of provided materials. .. feel free to bring your own as well, to spark your creative juices – natural or recycled are best.

More info at Existential Party Forums.

Please join me on this journey to the depths of our creativity.Look forward to sharing this experience with you!

Blessings,
Amit

* Event will begin at 2 pm, but feel free to bring your swimming gear for a dip in Felice’s pool before! Please contact me if you need directions to Felice’s House: 0821 4783 5711

Earth Day Wonders!

Standard

The latest Butterfly Bridge Arts work + playshop took place last weekend, on Earth Day. What a treat to have a small, intimate group of just the 4 of us! With enough space to move, meditate, visualize, share and create art, there was an amazing feeling of flow and of connecting to the earth on so many levels.

Already looking forward to the next one.. stay tuned!

Upcoming in Ubud…

Standard

Stay tuned for news about creative arts work-&-playshops on the Island of the Gods, Bali!

First up, Ubud: Join us for a day among the coconut palms, banana and frangipani trees, rice paddies and kites swaying in the sky.

It’s not about learning the art or art, of writing or dance; nor is it about making the best ‘anything.’ It’s about observing, breathing, paying attention, and letting your body tap into your creative core. Above all, it’s about reminding yourself that you were once playful – and can be so again.

Details to follow!

Namaste,

Amit
