The Friday Sacred Art and Theatre Days are going strong, with a core group of dedicated people. The last couple of Fridays have involved exploration of the practice of Chenrezig (Tibetan Archetype of the embodiment of Universal Compassion), and various aspects described within the text.

Here are a few photos of recent Chenrezig exploration .We do the wongkur, then discuss the text from the point of view of one of the different aspects of compassion raised in the text. The top group photos consider compassion in relationship to the healing of ignorance within the bounds of animal nature. The major colour/mood is sky blue. The bottom group of photos reflect the compassion which is needed for the healing of doubt and desire, which is said to afflict humanity. The major mood/colour is gold.
It seems to be getting to the point where the exercise is quick and has a flow to it, a collective endeavour.

Please comment and let us know your thoughts! If you are wanting to be involved in the Sacred Art Explorations in Balingup or Perth, you can contact Dolma or Coorain directly (details provided on this site).
