Way of Shambhala - Contentment in Everyday Life


with Hamish Tucker & John Cowan
April 11 / 7:00 PM - May 9 / 9:00 PM

Registration for this course is now closed.


This course provides an exploration of genuine contentment, the foundational views of the Buddhist teachings, and meditation in action for daily life. With meditation practice, we can learn to appreciate ourselves and simple human experiences, free from self-aggression. Difficult emotions and the challenges of life can be met with gentleness, steadiness, and humor.


This is the second course of the Way of Shambhala path of training. The course includes guided meditation, talks, and open discussion of the challenges that meditators face in their practice. It pairs well with the weekend retreat Shambhala Training Level II.


Prerequisite: Open to the public. (Note: Contentment in Everyday Life is prerequisite for the next course in the series, Joy in Everyday Life.)


Schedule: Five consecutive Thursdays, April 11 – May 9, 7:00 – 9:00 PM


Suggested readings: See Contentment in Everyday Life Reading List (PDF). The main reference books are available for purchase in the Victoria Shambhala Centre’s bookstore.


Suggested price: $85.00; $50.00 for Shambhala Training Level II graduates. Generosity Policy applies.
