About us

The practice of dharma art is a way to use our lives to communicate without confusion the primordial and magical nature of what we see, hear, and touch. — Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche

First thought is best in art. — William Blake


Part One: Coming to Your Senses

The creative process has more to do with perception than talent. It requires that we first perceive our world as it is before we can represent it in some form or use it as a launching pad for expression. Meditation helps this process by clarifying our perceptions, relaxing our relentless self-dialoguing, and revealing the source of creativity. Through meditation, we also learn that we can rest in “square one,” a state of mindfulness and awareness where our mind, body, and environment are synchronized and self-expression can transform into pure-expression.

Shambhala Art is a hands-on approach to creativity. This weekend retreat will consist of short meditation sessions and exploratory exercises using collage, poetry, and object arrangement.

For more information about Shambhala Art, visit the website Shambhala Art.  Also see the Spring 2017 Shambhala Art Newsletter for an article by Stéphane Bédard entitled If Sun Meets Wind, on the creative process.

Stay tuned for registration and pricing.

Why Retreat?

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

To be more present and engaged in the world, to be of benefit to others. Vincent

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.
