Tools For Handling Yourself Without a Recipe
w/Stuart Shils
A three-day hands-on studio seminar focusing on the interiority of observation
Friday November 3 - Sunday November 5
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Lecture, Thursday November 2, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
All students of the workshop should attend the lecture, which is included in the tuition.
When we arrive at a difficult place in the studio, are we comfortable being outside the comfort zone and then, where do we turn to make decisions about what’s next?
Are we willing to RISK diving deep into an instinctual response with no care for right or wrong? And how do we construct the confidence to risk acting intuitively?
PLAY isn’t about acting like a child but rather, the cultivated, intentional, consolidation of everything we know and everything we don’t know which is just as important as ‘knowing’. Play is the way we pay attention to the cultivation of off leash curiosity.
PLAY requires relearning how to forget all the regimentation, rules, techniques that we’ve been ‘taught’, and GETTING TOTALLY LOST IS THE PRIMARY WAY FORWARD to the pace where illumination can occur IF we get out of our own way.
