Karen Redding

Karen K Redding, is a fine art photographer, is a resident of Laguna Beach and avid world traveler. Karen’s background as a psychotherapist and dharma/meditation teacher at InsightLA, inspires a deep relationship to her subject and offers a reflective interpretation of what she sees.

Travels Through Humanity is the name of her growing body of photographic work, taken in remote places throughout the world. It has received attention in several art exhibits in Southern California.

This body of work, called AWAKENING, features compelling images of sacred places photographed in Sri Lanka, India, and the Kingdom of Bhutan. The work hopes to transport each of us to those sacred places that connect us to our essential Buddha nature and common humanity when we can meet ourselves and each other in a more kind and compassionate way.


Cayce Howe

Cayce Howe is a Senior Dharma/Meditation Teacher for InsightLA, and is a primary teacher at their Long Beach chapter. Cayce’s meditation practice and study spans over 25 years, including living and working for nearly 6 years in meditation retreat settings and participating in a one year retreat in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Cayce has dedicated himself to assisting others in discovering the benefits of meditation.

He hopes that his art can support the direct realization of the true nature of all things- love.

Artist Statement:

“Art of the 3 Kayas

All of the art you will find is a combination of only 3 colors. The colors represent the “Three Kayas” in Tibetan Buddhism.

 Dharmakaya- Formless Realm

Sambhogakaya- Light, Energy Realm

Nirmanakaya- Form Realm

The art itself can be used as a tool for meditation, an entry or doorway to direct experience.

Each piece represents the dance between the formless realm of unity, the dualistic characteristics of form and the light energy that allows us to walk between the two.”

The Art of Making Medicinal Teas – Thursday MAR 22, 7-9pm

March 2, 2018
Making tea is a ritual that involves all the sacred elements – fire heats the water, we add herbs (earth), and the steam is the air. Taking a few moments out of our day to drink tea is an act of self care that allows us to slow down, commune with the plants, and nourish ourselves. This class will be sensory and hands on, helping us truly embody what we learn. In this class you will learn how to get the maximum medicinal benefits from the herbs. We will learn the two main methods for making tea: infusions and decoctions. Learning how to make infusions and decoctions is an essential skill for working with medicinal plants. Through sensory experiences and tea samples, we will learn about the various tastes of plants + plant energetics and why thats important for deciding which herbs to use. I will guide you through sensory tea meditations and we will tap into our intuition and the wisdom of the plants. You will walk away feeling empowered and inspired to make medicinal strength tea and to incorporate a tea drinking practice into your daily life. I will provide you with the tools, and then you can go home and practice. What to Expect: – Sensory tea meditation – Learn how to make herbal infusions and decoctions – An abundance of tea samples to engage your senses – Learn about tastes + plant energetics and why thats important for deciding which herbs to use and making tea blends – Take home herbs to use for self care tea rituals This class costs $40.
