True Perception: A Shambhala Art Creativity Lab and Art Share

Sat July 1st: 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

“You could actually sum up the history of your life in one stroke—that’s possible. In your life in general, you never make such a comment as you make in one stroke of the brush, in one flower arrangement, or in one line of poetry. Those are actual statements. They are not very important on their own, but for what they represent. As such they are very strong and powerful.”

—Chogyam Trungpa, Dharma Art

Join us in exploring the place where meditation practice and creative expression meet through exploration of the dharma art teachings of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Learn More >>

Mudra Space Awareness Practice

with Greg Heffron

Sun June 25th: 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Much of the time, we don’t relate to the body, even when it is crying out for our attention. Instead of relating to our actual body, we tend towards what Chogyam Trungpa called “psychosomatic body” — where we think about our bodily experience, rather than actually feeling embodied. This process is one of the main ways we disconnect from experience.
 Mudra Space Awareness is a powerful mind-body meditative discipline unique to the Shambhala lineage, and is rarely taught or practiced. This workshop will introduce Mudra to those not familiar, and deepen it for those that are. Learn More >>
