The Artist’s Way: Tabla, Seva, & Sadhana
A workshop by Robin Sukhadia
Within each us is an Artist seeking to breakthrough. For those courageous enough to listen and to channel creativity, Art can serve as the most powerful form of enacting change. Join Robin Sukhadia, Fulbright Senior Research Scholar and Project Ahimsa Grants Director, for a special talk/workshop on the connection between Art and Social Change at Moved by Love on Saturday September 3, 2011 6:30pm. Robin will be sharing his journey of studying tabla and also drawing connections between Art and Service by highlighting Gandhi’s own connection to artists Rabindranath Tagore and Leo Tolstoy. The workshop will emphasize techniques developed as part of the Artist’s Way, a multi-step process developed by Julia Cameron for recovering and nurturing the artist within all of us.
