Symbolizing the Awakened Heart: Buddhist Visual Literacy

On Zoom: 4 sessions, continuing August, 6 & 20:30-8:00 pm

We are offering a four-lecture series that will explore the imagery of Buddhism and extend your understanding beyond the limits of culture and history.
How do the forms we create reflect the structure of our mind? What can we learn from this? How can an image communicate complex meaning inexpressible through words? How do visualizations transmit meaning? How are various images interrelated?
Register to attend any individual session or all four.
June 18: The Basics of Buddhist Visual Literacy – recording available
July 2: Representing Buddha: What Does Awake Look Like? – recording available
August 6: Exploring the Imagery of Arya Tara
