Discover basic goodness in the world and ourselves.
Through the practice of meditation, we begin to glimpse that goodness is the unconditional ground of our existence. Opening to ourselves with gentleness and appreciation, we begin to see our potential as genuine and compassionate human beings.

This Shambhala Art retreat will provide an opportunity for artists and non-artistsalike to experience creativity and its genuine expression in all aspects of our lives. The retreat will include teachings, meditation, awareness exercises, and creative and group processes that help to unlock a non-conceptual sense of expression that is available to all.In many traditions, artists train not only in their discipline; they also train in awareness, confidence, and compassion. The program draws on the teachings on the creative process developed by the Tibetan meditation teacher, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, who said of artists, “You could play a tremendous role in developing peace throughout the world.” This training builds our capacity to do so and to share it with others. The training will close with a celebratory reception, “graduation,” and presentation of pins.
