Way of Shambhala: Meditation in Everyday Life

with Miriam Klotz & Lauren Newton
July 9 / 7:00 PM - August 6 / 9:00 PM

Meditation in Everyday Life provides an opportunity to deepen the experience and understanding of meditation for new students, with special attention on practical suggestions for establishing a sitting practice in the midst of our speedy society. Each evening class allows for open discussion of the challenges that students are facing in their practice.

Further, this series of classes offers a glimpse of the Shambhala vision of enlightened society by emphasizing the ways in which meditation can impact our daily lives, and can expand to impact our whole society.

Turning the Mind into an Ally by Sakyong Mipham, Rinpoche, is the required text for this course, and we will also be using readings from Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior by Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche.
