It’s free! You’ll learn how Colorado’s big bugs stack up against those on the gallery walls? You might be surprised – or relieved!

It’s Tea Time at Lincoln Center Galleries
While you’re visiting the Lincoln Center you’ll have the opportunity to see a variety of hand-crafted ceramic teapots, collected by long-time resident and nationally recognized potter and innovator Nan McKinnell. Sharing tea with friends was one of Nan’s favorite pastimes, and she collected teapots made by many of her friends and colleagues. The teapots will be on display until November 3rd.

Gallery hours are 10 am – 6 pm, Tuesdays through Fridays and noon – 6pm on Saturdays. The Gallery is closed Sundays and Mondays, but is open for most theatre performances. Admission is free.

Warriors Who Practice Zen

Although the name Shaolin Warriors might suggest a violent connotation, it would be incorrect to associate demonstrations of Shaolin fighting techniques as acts of aggression. If you attend their Lincoln Center performance on Oct 24th, you’ll notice that the Shaolin fight mostly in silence, exhibiting what can be described as “stillness in movement,” this “stillness” is a direct result of a serene mind, cultivated through the practice of meditation.

The Shaolin performers train in martial arts for several hours every day – perfecting the art of hand-to-hand and weapons combat. Each performer is required to achieve an extraordinarily high level of proficiency in each of the 18 traditional weapons, and to become a master of one. However, it is daily meditation which enables the performers to sustain such physically demanding regimens.

Through a practice known as Ch’an (Chinese for Zen), they calm the body and focus the mind to attain a mental state known as Samadhi, or complete mental absorption. It’s in this highly focused state of mind that they are able to sustain extreme physical discomfort which enables them to endure the intense daily training required to achieve the level of adeptness for which they are so highly praised.

Don't miss this amazing display of Kung Fu mastery!
