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 people 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 International, and Naropa Institute.  Shambhala Art is a division of Shambhala and is presided over by his son and heir, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. This program is taught by trained and authorized Shambhala Art teachers.

What is Shambhala Art?

  • Phoenix Shambhala Meditation Center 7024 E. Osborn Rd, Suite A Scottsdale, AZ 85251 (map)

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 Shambhala Art Part 1 on Saturday and Sunday. Donations are gratefully accepted.
