It’s Not Over Until Singapore Sings…

Standard

One week ago, I was in Singapore. I’d had this sense, already brewing for a few months, that I was meant to facilitate creative arts workshops – within the corporate sphere – in that city (-state). It wasn’t anything I was pursuing actively (yet), but I meant to discuss it with a friend and acquaintance. Because of their schedules, I never had the chance…

In the months and weeks leading up to last week’s stopover in SP, the universe (call it what you will) was transmitting messages to me about this eventuality, and I was just filing them away. Then, in Singapore and also since my return to Bali, that sense has remained front & center; appearing in various guises, tapping me on the shoulder at the strangest moments; concocting serendipitous meetings with strangers who have lived in SP, are now living there, are working in corporate offices (and here in Ubud on vacation), and much more; with such regularity that it bears mention, bears paying closer attention.

So I will put it out there in the world, to my creative spirits & souls, and ask: what is it about Singapore that I am being called on to share the creative process in that place above all others?

Painless Arts… in Ubud!

Standard

Ubud’s upcoming Painless Arts Playshop will focus on the theme of Creativity and Chronic Pain.

If you, or someone you know, suffers from acute or chronic pain; and if you’re looking for an expressive, alternative, non-medicinal way of coping, join us at the Painless Arts Playshop in Ubud!

During this ‘playshop,’ writer, photographer, designer, yoga student, irrepressible walker and chronic pain sufferer Amit Janco will introduce you to the creative possibilities of living with, and moving through, pain. Using music, movement, visualization, writing, art and humor, we will explore ways to grow and deepen our connection to ourselves.

Feel free to dress comfortable, bring materials (recycled, natural are preferred) and be prepared to dive into your own source of creativity. No previous arts-related experience is necessary. Minimal donation to cover cost of materials.

With blessings, from Butterfly Bridge Arts & … Amit!

Date: March 20, 2012
Time: 2-4 pm (approx)
Location: Tebesaya, Ubud

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
