January 3rd—January 8th

    Room: WESTSIDE SHAMBHALA @ 3877 Grand View Blvd, Mar Vista, 90066


    Shambhala Art is about how we create and view each moment, our environments, and the artistry of life itself. Seeing through our own projections, biases, strategies and conditioning, it is possible to see clearly and directly. We call that “Square One,” a fresh starting point.

    All of us can rediscover and develop our innate ability to create and view through the gentle discipline of meditation and meditation in action to arrive at Square One. From there we can then extend our senses out, and experience and appreciate the world as it is; relating to our expressions and our world with clarity, insight, and playfulness.

    The five-part intensive is an opportunity to work with these teachings in a deep way through a supportive environment. Our days will include meditation, creative and group processes, discussion, and time for contemplation. These processes help to unlock a non-conceptual expression that is available to all, artist and non-artist alike. 

    At the completion of the intensive, participants will receive the Shambhala Art graduate pin and connection to the worldwide group of individuals working with these teachings.

    There are no prerequisites for this intensive — professional, personal, or otherwise. Registration is available through the Shambhala Art website or through Eventbrite. We look forward to having you join us!

    The Shambhala Center of Los Angeles remains open because of the ongoing generosity of our community. One of the cornerstones of our policy is that no one be turned away for lack of funds. If you can’t afford a program, please call our office (323-255-5472) to register based on what you can afford. At the same time, the Center relies on program revenue to cover costs. For those who are able to pay more than the program price, your generosity in paying the Patron Price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price, and provides additional support to the Shambhala Center of Los Angeles. Thank you for your kindness!

    If you cancel more than 7 days prior to your class (and have already paid), you will receive a full refund less a processing fee of $15. If you cancel between 1 to 7 days prior to arrival, we will credit your payment towards another program at Shambhala Los Angeles to be used within 1 year. No refunds or credits are issued for cancellations received fewer than 24 hours prior to arrival.
