WISDOM in Everyday Life


with Adana Barbieri
May 9 / 7:00 PM - June 6 / 9:00 PM

WISDOM in Everyday Life course looks at the qualities of a master warrior whose vastness of mind and kindness are fully manifested in the world. The practitioner is introduced to the Vajrayana teachings of Buddhism, which reveal the sacredness of the phenomenal world. Students will receive essential instructions for transforming confused emotions and situations into wisdom as they arise.

The master warrior is no longer deterred or depressed by obstacles, but with tremendous forward vision and strength, the Wisdom playfully includes everything as part of the path. In this way, the warrior is able to skillfully benefit the world.

The Way of Shambhala series is presented by a dedicated team of experienced Shambhala teachers under the guidance of the Shambhala lineage holder, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.

Pre-requisite: The Way of Shambhala builds on experiences through the levels and the courses. As the final course in this series, FEARLESSNESS in EVERYDAY LIFE is a pre-requisite to take this course. It is also highly recommended to have taken the Shambhala Training Levels I-V before attending WISDOM in Everyday Life.

NOTE: Following the WISDOM IN EVERYDAY LIFE course is the final weekend program in the Way of Shambhala series -- Rigden: Unconditional Confidence (Boulder: May 18 - 20). The prerequisite to attend that program is the full first year curriculum: ST Levels I-V and the corresponding 'IN EVERYDAY LIFE' course: MEDITATION, CONTENTMENT, JOY, FEARLESSNESS, and WISDOM.
