Sherab “Shey” Khandro’s deepest wish is to nourish and inspire the hearts and minds of others through paintings, sculpture and philosophical reflections focused on art, spirituality and the experiences of modern life. She invites you to come alive in your own journey through the power of mindfulness and intentionality, exploring the transformative power of universal Love and Compassion.
Born and raised in the United States, Sherab was ordained as a Buddhist nun in the Tibetan tradition for 15 years. Her art and philosophy for living express a blend of the East and the West. A modern woman and one of the early Western artists to receive formal training from Tibetan masters in exile, her art is naturally an expression of the ancient and the contemporary. In her paintings she uses the neo-impressionist style of pointillism, tiny dots of color creating rich and vibrant imagery. Each stroke of the brush holds a prayer of compassion, each dot offered as a jeweled universe, an aspiration to end suffering in the world.

Her workshop will bring the energy of our long suppressed past alive through poetry, chant, and movement. In this interactive, experiential presentation, the hymns that Enheduanna, a high priestess, sung to the moon goddess Inanna, the most powerful deity in Sumeria 5,000 years ago, will resound again. We will also rescue Medusa from her image as a monster. We will welcome these women into our world as muses, mentors, and mothers.
