With Tina Lassiter
- Thursday, July 11, 6:30-8:30pm
Come unearth the unique creative treasures that rest inside you! Our facilitator, Tina Lassiter, has developed this collage-making "joyshop" to evoke change, stimulate thinking, and transform the lives of those who accept an invitation for exploration. Please join us for a lively evening of music, movement, conversation, creating art and more as we mindfully walk into the garden of goddess delight!
Tina Lassiter, artist, writer, photographer, and a goddess blossom who loves travel, has been on a year-long journey into mindfulness, wellness and complementary and alternative medicine. She has combined her artistic gifts with jewels from this journey to develop this latest program. In addition, Tina's own artwork will be featured as part of our Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery exhibition in July, "From the Outside," which invites you to look beyond the boundary of your sight and experience this fantastically unique art form for yourself. Eight of Tina's collage goddesses, representing the evolution of her work beginning with creations that focus on the female torso to more fully formed beings, will be shown. Each are layered with stories as one views both the pieces that form each body as well as the body in totality.
