About us

Shambhala Art Intensive: All Five Parts
Boulder Shambhala Center
June 27-July 2, 2018

June 27   7:00-9:00pm 
Introductory Talk - Laying the ground of the Shambhala Art journey. The five-part Shambhala Arts program encourages the exploration of how meditation and contemplation work with the creative process.

June 28   9:30am-5:30pm 
Part One: Coming to Your Senses

The creative process has more to do with perception than talent. We learn through meditation that we can rest in a state where our mind, body, and environment are synchronized and self-expression can transform into pure-expression.

June 29   9:30am-5:30pm 
Part Two:  Seeing Things As They Are

Through meditation we come to see things as they are as opposed to how we imagine things are. We discover that everything has a felt presence. 

June 30   9:30am-5:30pm 
Part Three: The Creative Process

The creative process is only half of the equation; the balance is an awakened viewing process that provides the means to fully perceive.

July 1   9:30am-5:30pm 
Part Four: The Power of Display

We explore things as they are in greater and greater depth. We find many shapes, sounds, tastes, colors, and textures with patterns that suggest connections to the seasons, emotions, truths, and wisdom.  Cultures throughout history have developed ways to merge their intuitive experience with their collective knowledge and to display these expressions through their arts.

July 2   9:30am-5:30pm 
Part Five: Art in Everyday Life

The gap between inspiration and manifestation can be huge and filled with obstacles, negativity, and self-consciousness. The five elements describe our world and our experience and offer a possibility to work with these challenges in differnt ways.

Partial attendance:
Introductory Talk: $20
Program: $88/day + $20/day material fee

Why Retreat?

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

To bring my friend and open her world to the gift of yoga. Denise

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.
