Meditation is one of the most basic tools necessary, both for living a creative life and for developing creative works.  Life is often fraught with obstacles that trip us up - or so we think. Without the inner work of clearing your mind and preparing for epiphanies, life and creativity we stay "stuck" when we can really move ahead. 

Clear Lake Meditation is a simple, restful, rejuvenating form of inner work that opens you to great insights... and to wonderful surprises. This technique was developed by presenter, David Hazard, over 36 years of inner life practice under the tutelage of masters from the Christian, Sufi, and Tibetan traditions.  If you want to find inner calm, clarity, and steps to more creative living and expression, this session will help you. 

Tools needed:  a notebook or pad, pen or pencil.

David is the founder and director of ASCENT, an international acclaimed coaching program for authors, which has launched the careers of more than 250 writers. He is the author of more than 30 books, including the international bestseller "Blood Brothers," now in 39 languages.

Ashby's Gap
Paintings by Tom Neel

One evening only
October 13, 2016
6:30 - 8:30 PM


Tom Neel celebrates his 28th year by paying tribute to one of the most iconic Piedmont landmarks, Ashby's Gap.  This geographical gateway, is nestled softly in the Blue Ridge Mountains, bordered between Loudoun and Clark counties, traversed by U.S. Route 50 and crossed by the Appalachian Trail. But from a scenic and artistic perspective, it is a tranquil monument to life here, as settings of country life with it as a backdrop are numerous even from miles away.

Acclaimed for his landscape paintings of the Piedmont, fine artist Tom Neel brings this show, the first of its kind to singularly celebrate Ashby's Gap to life.  Hosted by The Hill School in Middleburg, his oil paintings will be featured in the Sheila C. Johnson Performing Arts Center with an opening reception Thursday, October 13th, 6:30.
