Philadelphia Shambhala Center Arts Group

September 9 / 7:30 PM - September 9 / 9:30 PM

Philadelphia Shambhala Center Arts Group

As yet another way to see our basic goodness, creating art connects us to the world around us as well as with other people.  Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche was renowned for his artistic talent, appreciation of the arts, and his respect for the power of art to awaken and liberate.

It is in this spirit that the The Shambhala Arts Group comes together.  We aim to create an art community amongst meditators.

Writers, performers, art appreciators, and artists of any medium or level are invited to attend.

Each meeting will consist of meditation, discussion, and one of the following:

    --Reading from Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s True Perception
    --Studio visits to each other’s home or studio
    --Field trips to museum events, etc
    --Exploration into other arts/meditation topics
    --Sharing of creative work

The default location is to meet at the Shambhala Center, but please contact the coordinator before coming, as many events are held off-site.
