Art and the Creative Spirit (#104)
What makes art sacred? Does the creative spirit lie within the artist, or is it channeled through the artist from some "higher power"?
This episode of Global Spirit seeks answers to these and other questions by looking at various sacred art forms, and by engaging with artists who speak eloquently about the spiritual aspect of the creative process. The program presents the work and teachings of Buddhist artist and teacher Lama Lhanang Rinpoche as well as Pueblo Indian sculptor Estella Loretto. Visually engaging and emotionally uplifting, this Global Spirit episode imparts new insights and discoveries about sacred art and the creative spirit from spiritual traditions as distant and seemingly disconnected as Tibet and the American Southwest.
