Why are we offering classes in so many different areas? They are our passions and a way for the creative process to unfold. Whether it be tying flies, cooking, baking, painting, taking photos or practicing yoga, we can forget about our own lives for a time by learning something new. The most important concept I learned in art schools is; The process is more important than the outcome. If you have fun while creating, it leads you down new and unexpected paths in your artwork and in life.
I changed my name to Lila which is a Sanscrit word that means ‘divine play’;
the play of creation, destruction, recreation and love. It is all of life; living fully in the moment, unattached to the outcome so we can be ever-flowing with creativity. The creative process is the guiding principle of my life which I am sharing with you in the classes I teach at my home.
Here's some quotes about the creative process:
from Julia Cameron's book 'The Artist's Way':The creative process is a process of surrender, not control.
from Elizabeth Murray's book 'Cultivating Sacred Space- Gardening for the Soul':Play sparks creativity and encourages risk taking. It helps us accept that life is about change, process, and growth
