15 years ago, Inspire opened its doors and began the joyful work of transforming people's lives.  It has been a beautiful time and we are so proud of the many accomplishments we've made.  Truly the power of Inspire has been to provide a space where people can connect while discovering their inner strengths.  As well, we are so honored to have worked with such great community partners like Eva's Heroes, Catholic Charities, SAISD, NEISD, Alpha Home, and Bexar County Juvenile Courts, just to name a few. We are equally proud to have employed so many artists over the years--giving them stable, part-time employment to such important members of our city's fabric.

We offer introductory instruction to newcomers and follow-up instruction to other practitioners as part of our Open House program and at other times by appointment.

Contemplative Arts comprise a number of secular disciplines and activities, including flower arranging and photography, that integrate art and culture with everyday life. Each of these disciplines represents a genuine contemplative path; together they bring beauty, vividness, and wisdom to our lives and culture. Shambhala Art is art that springs from clear perception and pure expression. To artist or non-artist, the creative process often seems mysterious and magical. How do we give a physical reality to some ephemeral inspiration or abstract truth? How do we create forms that communicate some essential nature beyond the limits of their container? The Shambhala Art Program’s purpose is to explore the creative process and the product we call art from the point of view of clear perception and pure expression. It is about the source of inspiration, how the creative process manifests and finally how what we create communicates that inspiration.
