About the 'Sacred Vision' Series
Join Herb Elsky, accomplished artist and teacher, for twice-monthly conversations with accomplished dharma practitioner-teachers on how the Dharma Arts have nourished their work and everyday life.
In the Shambhala warrior tradition, "art" is connected with a bigger, sacred vision of humanity, a way of sharing discoveries of expression that are authentic and revelatory for opening new dimensions of possibilities for people.
The 'Dharma Arts' represent some of the earliest and most profound teachings given by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Not intended merely for those who consider themselves 'artists', these teachings have enriched and nourished countless practitioners from all walks of life.
