A large number of people end up as adults who have little or no sense of themselves as legitimate creators. This blog explores the idea of creativity in its widest sense (painting, dancing, felting, cooking, writing, poetry, film-making etc.) and starts with the question 'how do we inhibit and block our naturally creative response to life?'

Tibetan performing arts
is Techung, who was a young musician training at the Tibetan Institute
of Performing Arts in North India when I worked there in about 1986.
the things I remember most strongly about this time was the Dalai Lama's
Court Dance Master visiting from Tibet, very old, having been allowed
by the Chinese to come out for a few months to pass on the performing
traditions of Tibet to the young Tibetans born in exile. Techung is one
of very few Tibetan musicians working in the West trying to keep these
traditions alive. He is trying to launch a recording project. If you
would like to support him you can visit his site at http://www.techung.com/.
Please pass this blog post on to anyone who you think might be interested in supporting his work. Thank you.
