Shambhala Art Part 1: Coming to Your Senses
A Saturday and Sunday workshop

Shambhala Art can be seen as a process, a product, and an arts education program. As a process, it brings wakefulness and awareness to the creative and viewing processes through the integration of contemplation and meditation. As a product, it is art that wakes us up. Shambhala Art is also an international non-profit arts education program based on the Dharma Art teachings of the late Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, the founder of Shambhala Buddhism, Shambhala, and Naropa Institute.

In part one of the five-part Shambhala Art curriculum, we focus on coming (back) to our senses. In this experiential weekend, we will work with our sense perceptions through a series of exercises. We will also enjoy meditation, dharma talks, and community time as we open to exploration of art in everyday life.

We welcome all people regardless of background to join us for this workshop; no prior experience or skill in “art” is necessary. No prerequisites.

Please also join us for the Friday Night talk:
What is Shambhala Art?
Friday, September 14, 7 - 9 pm

Shambhala Art, Shambhala Arts, Dharma Art, Dharma Arts, Contemplative Arts — what’s in a name, really? In this public talk, we’ll explore the history of art within Shambhala, from the early days of Chogyam Trungpa establishment of Tail of the Tiger (now Karme Choling) to the present day. We’ll also look at understanding the differences and nuances between Shambhala Art, Shambhala Arts, and the path of Shambhala Art training. We’ll also have a chance to work with some experiential exercises that are part of the Shambhala Art curriculum.

The Friday night talk is free to all, whether or not you have registered for the Saturday/Sunday workshop. Donations are gratefully accepted.
