PICTURES FROM THE EVENTS
 

 

artSpa currently exists as a shifting public & private forum,
subtly amplifying the connective tissue(s) of Los Angeles,
the art-and-then-somes -

artistswritersdancersmusicians[...] + practitionersofmassageyogamindfullnesswellness[...]

- weaving energetically among bodies and spirits and minds,
as they co-habit the contexts of the aesthetic, the individual, and the relational. . .


Sea and Space Explorations is pleased to host artSpa storefront, a month-long residency organized by Adam Overton that will feature a number of Los Angeles artists who also live, work, and/or dabble as healers, therapists, energeticists, and facilitators of all varieties.

artSpa plans to provide a full calendar of weekly events, including an artist-run walk-in clinic, experimental meditation groups, workshops, panels, performance events, and private bodywork sessions, all of which will be facilitated by artists, dancers, writers, performers, gallerists, et al, who currently work as bodyworkers, yoga teachers, psychics, psychologists, energy therapists, and so on.

artSpa Sundays and most events are free to attend,
though the cost of services and workshops may range from free, to donation, to $$, as determined by the artists involved.

artSpa Week 1

Sun Nov 4th*
  11am - Noon, Experimental Meditation Group

Is it limiting to believe that meditation is simply a form of sitting, breathing and quietude? Come join us for a meditation "open-mic" every Sunday morning and Tuesday evening in November as we explore a more expansive and experimental view of mindfulness & somatic practices. We welcome the serious and the irreverent, the traditional and the contemporary, the mundane and the imaginative. Bring a meditation or two, an open mind, and maybe a pillow if you care to sit...

    Foreign Exchanges: Mediating Conflict (an artist's perspective)
      with Dorit Cypis

cost: pay what you can
space is limited - please rsvp by at least one-day in advance: a@plus1plus1plus.org

Dorit Cypis [Founder] is an artist, Masters of Fine Art, California Institute of the Arts, and a mediator, Masters of Dispute Resolution, Pepperdine University. Mining aesthetics, mediation and the somatic arts, her work explores the relationships between the psychological, the corporeal, and the political. Since the late 1970’s, Cypis’ museum exhibitions are immersive laboratories abstracting forms, positions, gestures, and meanings to shed light on the paradoxes of identity - while her public works/actions are social/ political extensions, mediating aesthetic abstractions into daily life. Here form truly meets function and ideology shifts back to experience. Foreign Exchanges brings together the best of her professional practices as artist, teacher and mediator.
