Brush Wisdom: Message from a Contemplative Heart

General Events Brush Wisdom is less about painting and more about how your life expresses itself. The foundation of Brush Wisdom is a clear mind, free of all thoughts. The paintings come from silence and stillness. No artistic experience is necessary. When your mind is spacious, clear and calm, your brush wisdom will naturally emerge. To enhance the power of the brush stroke, this retreat will utilize Qi Gong, breathing and Haiku. Developing a deep sense of presence and open relationship to your true self, the brush, ink and paper allow you to access your deeper wisdom in a new and refreshing manner. Each participant is asked to bring a message (a word, spiritual phrase, words to a song or poem, etc.) to incorporate into their brush work. Friday, December 5, 2014, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM. Franciscan Spirituality Center, 920 Market Street, La Crosse, WI 54601. For more info visit www.fscenter.org.
