Sacred Art talks and workshops with Ekabhumi Ellik
June 20 • 6:00 pm - June 24 • 4:00 pm
Please join author and instructor Ekabhumi Ellik for series of events celebrating, making, and learning about sacred art in Eugene, OR, next month, June 20-24. Events include dates that are free, sliding-scale, and paid admission. This is Eka’s first time in Eugene, so the producers want to make these important teachings accessible to all who are sincerely interested.
Are you interested in Altars? Deities? Ceremony? Sacred Art? Do you have any improvised altars at home that you would like to power up? You know, that shelf where you keep a groovy statue, burn incense, and light a candle once in a while? Or you just want to know what all those voluptuous deities signify?
Maybe you are wondering about traditional ways to deepen your Yoga practice? Perhaps you’ve had visionary dreams? Some spooky experiences around the house? One of the most important uses of sacred art is the home altar, which provides protection, supports our spiritual journey, and enlivens our subtle senses.
If your interests are more casual, join me for a book signing at Tsunami Books, a coloring book party at Washburn Café, or bring a favorite icon of a deity, or a statue of “somebody-you-don’t-know” for an “Antiques Roadshow” type event at Balanced Hot Yoga. I will do my best to decipher who and what it is, take an educated guess at what it’s worth, and share lots of fun insights to the iconography of South Asian deities.
These events are part of the ongoing Yoga & Philosophy Teacher Trainings offered by Libby Cox of Two Birds Yoga Training. http://www.twobirdsyogatraining.com/
