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.

Shambhala-Art Inspired

The Presence Point

Stuart Rice


The Presence Point was founded by Sarah Lipton after nearly twenty years’ experience in two key streams that are brought into the work of The Presence Point: leadership of others and a background of deep training in the Shambhala buddhist lineage, which focuses on learning how to take leadership of one’s own life for the benefit of others.

Sarah teaches clients to be present within experience so that they can relate directly and genuinely with the environment and systems around them.
