How do you see the phemomenal world?  This introduction to Shambhala Arts is an invitation to understand your perceptions.  No skills are necessary. No experience required.  Everyone is welcome!

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. We also learn through meditation 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.


There are no prerequisites for this introductory program.  Please bring your curious, open mind.  Those who took the introductory course "When Ugly is Beautiful" are welcome to repeat this expanded program for $20.  This course is the pre-requisite for Dharma Arts 2.


Regular Price: $50 members; $60 non-members.  Repeaters:  $20.


This program will take place at the location of the Shambhala Gainesville Meditation Group: 1899 NE 23rd Avenue, Gainesville, FL  32609.
