Our friends at Story Bar present their monthly workshop on creativity as a contemplative practice and how to use mindfulness as a tool for engaging in the arts and society. This month’s event will benefit ScriptWorks. The session will be led by SW member Diana Small and will center around art-making as a way to wrestle with mystery. How do we create space in our lives to be curious and encounter mystery? How can we shape the mysteries that make us uncomfortable into questions? How can we investigate those questions through art and sustain a life of curiosity, mystery, and wrestling?
