Shambhala Art I & II

with Judy Bond
June 27 / 7:00 PM - June 29 / 5:00 PM


Life is a series of exchanges: we perceive and we respond.

But we aren't always curious, open and attentive to our sense perceptions.

Thus, our responses aren't always the wise, kind and creative expressions
they could be.

Join us for a weekend of exercises in different media, talks, and discussions
on the relationship between meditation and the creative process as taught by
Shambhala founder  Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Learn how he created his world
using paintings, poetry, ikebana, photographs and plays, and how you are and
could be creating yours. Open to the artist in everyone.

Friday night: Introduction to the Shambhala Art teachings of
Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche 
Saturday: Shambhala Art Part I: Coming To Our Senses
Sunday: Shambhala Art Part II: Sign and Symbol: how we assign meaning
to our experience. 

Please note that it is possible to attend only the Friday evening talk, for which
there is no charge.

Saturday will be all day with lunch provided at the center. Sunday you
will have the opportunity to bring your own lunch or go out.  Please
let us know if you have special dietary or other needs.  If you have
questions, please contact Barb Kviz, Nalanda Art Coordinator.

Judy Bond is a teacher of Shambhala Training, Shambhala Art, Ikebana, Calligraphy, and professionally, a science educator. She has studied with both Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and his father Chögyam Trungpa for many years.  We welcome her from Baltimore Shambhala Meditation Center and State College, PA, where she moved to recently.
