Shambhala Art Parts 1-5


with Arawana Hayashi & Sandra Ladley
July 26 / 7:30 PM - August 2 / 9:00 AM

A week long retreat covering Shambhala Art Parts 1-5.  No art or meditation experience is needed.


Shambhala Art’s purpose is to explore the creative process and the product we call art, from the viewpoint of a meditative discipline.  It is a viewpoint that encourages us to see things as they are, rather than just how we think or imagine they are.  Shambhala Art does not teach a particular skill or technique such as painting, sculpture, or dance. It is about the source of inspiration, its manifestation, and how it speaks to us beyond the limits of its container.  Once a view and a path are established it can be put into practice within any artistic discipline.  Although the Shambhala Art teachings are inspired by Shambhala Buddhism, they are not in any way religious or about adopting a religion. They are about discovery and play, and the universal nature of creativity and communication. (From the Shmabhala Art website, http://www.shambhalaart.org/.)


Prices include all meals.


There will be an additional material fee, still to be determined.
