About us

“Art refers to all the activities of our life, including any artistic disciplines that we practice.  It refers not only to the formal practice of art, but to the artistry of life itself—our whole being.”

 —Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche

This Art + Life Retreat will include all 5 parts of the Shambhala Art training program. It will provide an opportunity for artists and non-artists alike to experience creativity and its genuine expression in all aspects of our lives.  The retreat includes teachings, meditation, awareness exercises, plus creative and group processes that help unlock a non-conceptual sense of expression that is available to us all.  In many traditions, artists train not only in their disciplines; they also train in awareness, confidence, and compassion.  The program draws from the teachings on the creative process developed by Tibetan meditation teacher Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, who said to artists, “You could play a tremendous role in developing peace throughout the world.” In our work together, we’ll build our capacity to do so and to share our inspiration with others.

Part Two: Seeing Things As They Are

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.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To find peace and renewal while going through a huge change in my life. Empty nest and the end of a 27 year marriage all at once. Susan

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
