David Schneider

March 16, 2005

This weekend, David Schneider returns to the Bay Area to lead a weekend program entitled Perception, Inspiration and Art, an introduction to the practice of dharma art. Schneider is a senior teacher in the Shambhala Buddhist lineage and a former student of both Suzuki-roshi and Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

Dharma Art is the exploration of the nature of our perceptions and how our thoughts influence what we perceive. The creative process requires that we first perceive our world as it is before we can represent it in an art form or use it as a launching pad for expression. We learn through a meditative discipline the source of creativity and the meaning of pure expression. Anyone interested in exploring contemplative art - and the chance to hear from a seasoned dharma teacher - might enjoy Schneider's public talk on Friday night.

Personal side note: Two years ago this week, I took refuge with Acharya Schneider.
