True Perception: Exploring Dharma Art 

 “In dharma art, what we are trying to do is to tame our society, including ourselves.” --Chogyam Trungpa


Join us as we use meditation, readings, discussion, and experiential exercises to explore the notion of “dharma art.” Readings will be taken from True Perception, a collection of Chogyam Trungpa’s teachings on dharma art, which is art that springs from a certain state of mind one could call the “meditative state.”

With in-class exercises we invite you to experience the richness of your senses and step into the open space of the present moment. 

In addition to being a meditation master and teacher, Chogyam Trungpa was trained in monastic dance, poetry, calligraphy, flower arranging, and thangka painting.  He saw everyday life and the practice of meditation as works of art and considered transcending aggression to be the root of artistic talent.

Open to all. Familiarity with meditation or contemplation is recommended. Meditation instruction will be offered and each class will begin with a half hour of meditation.


Tuesdays, Jan. 16- Feb. 13, 6:30-8:30 pm (Open for drop-ins)

Generosity Policy:

The Brunswick Portland Shambhala Center is funded solely by your membership and program donations. Thank you for your generosity as you consider what you can pay for each program at our Center. We strive to price our programs in a way that accurately reflects the financial need of our Center and the cost to us of producing the program.

We have a generosity policy to make our offerings available to all who wish to participate. If the program price is an obstacle for you, please consider what is possible for you in your current situation, and offer as much of the program fee as you can.

For those who can offer more than the program price, we have a “patron price”. Your generosity in offering the patron price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price.
