Shambhala Art Day
Shambhala Art Day is an annual celebration of
Art in Everyday Life
Shambhala Art Day has been designated by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche to occur on the spring equinox. It is a day when the entire Shambhala community and friends are invited to celebrate art forms and disciplines that embody the Dharma Art teachings of the Vidyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. These teachings encourage the creation and manifestation of art that wakes up the viewer as well as its maker to a sense of unconditional sacredness within the phenomenal world.
Planning a Shambhala Art Day
Shambhala Art Day can take any number of forms based on your group or center's location, member interests, etc. Some examples of activities include:
Art viewing at a local museum, gallery, etc.
Art show produced by local members and artists
An introductory talk given by a Shambhala Art educator
Creative activities grounded in meditation and Shambhala Art principles
As with other Shambhala nyida days, Shambhala Art Day should be an uplifted and celebratory opportunity for the community to come together. For examples of past Shambhala Art Days, please see the following links or contact us below.
