Contentment in Everyday Life @ Our Canton Center


with Richard Weiner
October 24 / 6:30 PM - November 19 / 8:00 PM

5 Evenings, 6:30- 8:30, at our Canton Center.Please note that class will be switched over to Mondays starting Nov. 5th.


The only prerequisite is having received Shambhala meditation instruction.


Contentment is hard to find.  We usually think contentment is found in things, achievements or experiences.  With meditation practice, we learn to appreciate ourselves and simple human experiences.  In this Way of Shambhala course we begin to understand why experience is often habitual and full of discontent and suffering.  And most importantly, we learn how difficult emotions and the challenges of life can be met with gentleness, steadiness and humor.

Contentment is Everyday Life is a companion course to Shambhala Training Level II but can also be taken as a stand-alone course.  The class includes meditation instructions, talks, periods of meditation practice, discussion, and a variety of contemplative practice activities.  A range of learning aids are used, including simple instructions, experiential exercises and strong community support.
