The Tao of Creativity

Flowing with the River of Life

with Panna (Anna Paola Maestrini)


In Nature, so beloved by the old Taoist philosophy, among all the elements Water is the most appropriate to teach us how to live in the flow. Even in ancient Greece, closer to us than China, Heraclitus used to say: “Ever-newer waters flow on those who step into the same rivers”. Every single moment is a unique universe breaking forth from the Ocean of Silence and then diving back into its depths.

We’ll learn how to stay in the Now and explore its depths, and how to let unexpected Treasures come up to the surface. These soul’s gems will manifest as paintings, movements, gestures, sounds, shapes molded in clay … all bringers of deep meanings that nurture our Heart. We’ll experience the joy that bubbles up when we adventure beyond our chattering mind into the breathtaking realm of “not-knowing”, the same territory that Taoists called “wei wu wei” – acting without effort, a spontaneous action that flows like water. And we’ll infuse our everyday life with this serendipitous flow.

  
 

Flow with whatever may happen
and let your heart be free;
stay centered
by accepting whatever you are doing.
This is the ultimate wisdom.
      – Zhuang Zi
