A Still Life and Death Drawing Meditation.
May 10 - June 8, 2019
in collaboration with Stilken Og Strom and curated by Heather Jones
at Prosjektrom Normanns in Stavanger, Norway
So you should view this fleeting world;
As a star at dawn, a bubble in a stream,
A flash of lightning in a summer cloud,
A flickering lamp, a phantom, a dream
THE DIAMOND SUTRA
TRUE NATURE is a month-long installation exploring the true nature of all phenomena: that which is always changing, impermanent and ‘empty’ of a separate self.
Featuring an elaborate arrangement of flowers created by local floral designer Stilken Og Strom, guests are encouraged to visit the installation on multiple occasions to deeply observe and draw the plants as they actively change and decay.
Inner Fields will host a series of 4 guided drawing meditations throughout the opening week. Through reflection, observation and discussion, these drawing practices are less about artistry and more about how we experience change, moment by moment.
Very special thanks to Heather Jones, Stilken Og Strom, Margrethe Aanestad, Elin Melberg, Prosjektrom Normanns and Odd Standard.

SANGHA. Monthly Meditation Practice.
The Inner Fields Sangha is a small but diverse, multi-lineage group who meet on the first Wednesday of every month (6.30pm-8pm) to practice meditation together. We offer one another encouragement, support and refuge in our personal commitments to living ethical, spiritual lives.
Silent meditation practice is followed by reflection, readings and discussion prompted by a monthly theme or topic. Beginners and guests welcome.
This monthly gathering meets in a private residence in Prospect Heights. Simply Contact Us to join or attend.
