Shambhala Art opening talk: Coming To Our Senses
with Shastri Sandra Ladley & Anne Saitzyk
This is the opening night talk for the Shambhala Art Retreat, all five parts.
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.
