In Shambhala Art, we learn mostly through exercises that make us aware and make us explore and discover the creative process.

Art has long been an expression of the very best society has to offer. Shambhala Art provides an opportunity for artists and for people to see their life as ‘art in everyday life’. In many traditions, artists have trained not only in their discipline, but they also have trained their minds in awareness, confidence, and compassion. Shambhala Art allows us to experience the profound teachings on art developed by the great Tibetan meditation teacher, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

The entire Shambhala Art Program is a 5-part introduction to the dharma art teachings of the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.  These teachings unlock a non-conceptual sense of expression that is available to all. Experiential exercises bring us deeper understanding of ourselves as powerfully creative beings. Trungpa Rinpoche says of artists, “You could play a tremendous role in developing peace throughout the world.” This workshop builds our capacity to do so.

Generosity Policy In order to make our programs accessible to everyone, we have a “pay what you can afford” policy. If the program price is an obstacle for you, please decide what works for you and offer whatever you can.  For those who can offer more, we invite you to pay more to help cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price.
