The Dharma Art teachings of Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche are not just about making “art”. They are about how we are creating ourselves each moment, the artistry of life itself, how we create our environments, and how we communicate and express ourselves to others.
Open to everyone, the programme will combine Dharma Art teachings with the Shambhala teachings about daring to be in the present moment — connecting with the energy and magic of being alive.
Using painting, movement, object arranging, voice, and writing among other modes, the exercises are designed to help with finding your own voice, your unique mode of expression. These teachings about the source of creativity show us how we can relate to ourselves and our world with clarity, discipline, and playfulness.
The Shambhala Art programme is presented in five parts:
Part One: Coming to Your Senses
Part Two: Sign and Symbol
Part Three: Heaven, Earth and Human – The Creative Process
Part Four: The Power of Display
Part Five: Art in Everyday Life
