Art as a Tool for Accessing our Divine Creativity

The arts teach us to be at ease in the unknown, to lean into what does not yet exist. The painter feels the shape of the clouds before the brush brings them into form, the dancer opens to the flow of energy and brings forth a new step. The creative process teaches us to open to new possibilities, to tune into ‘what’s trying to happen’. The arts are important not just for decoration and entertainment (as they were in the age of form) but as tools for awakening and channeling energy.

Bharatnatyam stands as a pinnacle of classical Indian dance, steeped in rich tradition and divine inspiration. Legend has it that Lord Brahma, the creator of the universe, bestowed this sacred dance upon the sage Bharata, who meticulously codified its essence into the Sanskrit text known as the Natya Shastra.

Bharatnatyam stands as a testament to the timeless beauty and enduring legacy of classical Indian dance. With its divine origins, intricate movements, and spiritual essence, it continues to inspire awe and admiration, transcending boundaries of time and culture.

Experience the magic of Bharatnatyam and embark on a journey of cultural discovery and artistic expression unlike any other.
