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 theme of this issue is magnetizing. In our invitation for this issue we invited potential submitters to consider how the quality of magnetizing arises in their experience of art and everyday life. We encouraged examples of magnetizing as a selfless action — heightening and addressing what might otherwise remain invisible or unnoticed — as well as its potential selfish quality — seducing or drawing in things to inflate importance or become the center of attention for selfish reasons.

This issue features pieces and interviews from Herb Elsky, Daniel Phillips, Kim Sargent-Wishart, Gordon Wood, and Rebekah Younger.
