Chime is currently touring New Zealand, connecting with old friends and meeting new. Some wonderful connections have been made with news to come. Here are some images from the Amitayus Sacred Art and Theatre teaching at the Wangapeka  study and retreat Centre ( http://www.wangapeka.org/ our friends in the global network of Namgyal Rinpoche)

Since the beginning of last year, a day a week has been set aside for Sacred art and Theatre exploration, Fridays at 9.30 am. The day has begun with a Wongkur, and then a class on the Archetype, followed by a discussion in the afternoon unlocking the universal themes from the mornings work. A thread is then chosen and expressed with the group building a universal shrine to the principle together. This has proved to be a wonderfully enriching and stimulating experience for those involved, a way of exploring the archetypal world that is difficult to define and universal.

This last month has seen a change in the format, with the group taking a universal theme that they would like to explore, rather than beginning with a traditional Tibetan Archetype. The Coorain weekends at the end of June and July will follow the old format, over the Saturday and Sunday.

In the gallery below you can view the shrines from the new format (Neighbour) and the June Coorain weekend (Refuge) as well as shrines from this last year of exploration.
