Guided Intent: Compassion
Wednesday, March 5, 2008
7 p.m.-9 p.m.
10 max, so RSVP quickly!

Compassion is an umbrella for many concepts that encompass our best selves: empathy, sensitivity, warmth, love, tenderness and mercy. Compassion lets us connect the gulf between "us" & "them."

One way to gain compassion for others is to "walk a mile in their shoes," as they say. So in March we will share our past, present & future stories -- on stage! Playback Theatre is a process that combines spontaneous collaboration with gentle direction. By being both storytellers and actors, we will see each other's stories through kinder eyes. It's often touching, hilarious, sad and bold all at once.

This is one of my favorite activities; there will be a LOT of lighthearted laughter & merrymaking! It might sound a little scary, especially if you consider yourself to be a primarily visual or a literary artist. But in addition to increasing your compassionate capacity, art exploration like Playback Theatre will encourage you to create more fearlessly and truthfully no matter what your dominant art is. Trust the process!

About the studio: Scarlet Star Studios offers a wide variety of opportunities for art exploration, with instructors who will encourage you to create fearlessly & truthfully in a familiar, safe and inspiring studio environment.

Fine print: Since our events often fill quickly, an RSVP who doesn't show means a missed opportunity for someone else. If you RSVP for a Guided Intent but your plans change, PLEASE give us as much notice as possible to give another artist a chance to play (at least 3 days). If we cannot find someone for your spot, you will be responsible for the cost of the event.
