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.

The creative process has more to do with perception than talent. It requires that we first perceive our world as it is before we can represent it in some form or use it as a launching pad for expression. Meditation helps this process by clarifying our perceptions, relaxing our relentless self-dialoguing, and revealing the source of creativity.

Shambhala Art Part I: Coming to Your Senses

This program is available to you whether or not you consider yourself an artist or a meditator. The Shambhala Art teachings celebrate art that springs from the meditative mind.  They remind us to appreciate the uniqueness of everyday sensory experience, the art of everyday life.  Seeing the simplicity and brilliance of “things as they are” provides the ground for genuine creativity which is the expression of non-aggression.
