Awakening the Dragon: Creativity, Meditation, and Balance
7:30pm • Free, but call to reserve a seat
Where do original ideas come from? And why are creative people so often somewhat crazy? The ancient science of Tantric Yoga and Meditation addresses these questions, and provides us with tools to cultivate and tame our creativity energy without suffering the emotional turmoil that so often accompanies inspiration. A key to understanding lies in the metaphor of the Two Dragons: the benevolent Chinese Dragon, and the aggressive, greedy European dragon, both symbolizing tremendous inner power. Dada Nabhaniilananda has been a Tantric Yoga monk for 32 years, and is also an author, musician, and songwriter.
