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 Educators provide programming throughout the world.

In terms of teaching dharma art, presenting dharma art, I think we are in a continual learning process ourselves. We see some things and people share. The interesting thing about dharma is that if it is meant to be given to others, naturally you have to do that or it begins to turn and it becomes less helpful. Part of it is actually generating and going further. Part of learning about it further is expressing it further.
— Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche
