“Of the purpose of Poetry, Horace says: to inform or to entertain. I can do him one better.”
The basic problem in artistic endeavor is the tendency to split the artist from the audience and then try to send a message from one to the other. — from the Dharma Art Letter, by Chogyam Trungpa

We’ve shared over four years in our beautiful studio home, and now it’s time to take the next step together. Within these walls, we’ve grown a community with a range of needs and inspirations that all link back to the deeper purpose of Be Space – to cultivate presence and expressive freedom. Thank you for being a part of this ongoing vision!
I continue to feel blessed by the remarkable gathering we shared last month. After culling through the photos and memories of this year's Life.Art.Being festival, I've put together a little recap to share with you. Enjoy!
We are all looking for ways that we can change the spell and mend our world. For me, for now, my way is to be humble and honest about my blind spots around race, and to practice the creative means that I believe will help us turn the corner toward a culture of wholeness.
In the face of all that is difficult… expressive art-making and connection with our living breathing selves & world make us more resilient. These practices open the door to a greater capacity to respond, and awaken a sense of belonging and connectedness.
Be Space is getting its director back, full time and full heart.
Together, we are stepping onto the path of tending Be Space with all of the care and creative juice it deserves.
Into the bold and uncertain future…
When we have the courage and willingness to show up as we are, we invariably discover those other genuine souls who are doing the same.
