Meditation in Everyday Life: Weekend Programme

with Peter Conradi & Angie Nehring
January 12 / 9:00 AM - January 13 / 6:00 PM

Usually taught as a five week evening class, we are now offering Meditation in Everyday Life as an intensive weekend programme. This programme provides introductory tools and teachings for working with meditation in everyday life. With simple instructions and support, mindfulness meditation can become part of our everyday lives and reveal our innate stability, clarity and strength. It is one of the main introductions to meditation that we offer and we highly recommend it for anyone interested in meditation, Buddhism or Shambhala.

This course is also one of the first parts of the curriculum from the Way of Shambhala, an ongoing training in meditation and how we can use Buddhist teachings to awaken to our inherent potential. This retreat will be led by Peter Conradi.

Peter Conradi is a long-term student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and has been appointed by the Sakyong as a 'shastri', or senior teacher. He is English Professor Emeritus at Kingston University, and the author of a number of books including Going Buddhist and Iris Murdoch: A Life. He is an elected fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.

Angie Nehring is a student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and has been an active member of Shambhala since 2001. She has held various senior positions within the organisation, including Director of Culture and Decorum and Shambhala Training Coordinator. She works at the BBC as a producer.
