Genuine art tells the truth.   ~ Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

Shambhala Art Part Two: Seeing Things As They Are with Laura Landau and Angela Lloyd MFA.

Art-making can be an inquiry into what is true. Trungpa Rinpoche taught dharma art as a way of investigating relative truth and absolute truth, which he called “sign” and “symbol.” The exercises in Part Two point us in the direction of non-conceptual knowing.

This all-day retreat will include a group dinner.

Suggested Reading: True Perception by Chögyam Trungpa.

The Shambhala Art teachings celebrate art that springs from the meditative mind. They remind us to appreciate the uniqueness of everyday sensory experience, the art of everyday life. Seeing the simplicity and brilliance of “things as they are” provides the ground for genuine creativity which is the expression of non-aggression.

The Shambhala Art Program takes five of the topics from a body of teachings presented by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and offers them as areas of exploration and focus. It is a study program of Trungpa Rinpoche’s root teachings on these topics which includes perception and art-making exercises that bring our understanding into direct experience.

This program is available to all with or without “art” experience. However, participants may not skip any part and continue to the next part. A list of recommended readings will be supplied on registration.
