Imagination as a path of practice with Stephen Batchelor
26 May 2019 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
What is the role of the imagination in Dharma practice? It is a help or a hindrance (or both)? During this day of meditation, talks and discussion we will consider how the creative arts in particular can enrich the experience of meditation and provide a bridge between one’s inner life and one’s participation in the world. Drawing upon his own work as a writer, collagist and photographer, Stephen will present an understanding of the imagination as central to the practice of becoming fully human.
