Meditation in Everyday Life


with Merlin Cox
February 21 / 7:30 PM - March 21 / 9:30 PM

This course 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 evening course 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 course will be taught by Merlin Cox.


Merlin Cox is a student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. He first encountered the teachings of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche (the founder of Shambhala) in 1977 and attended Vajradhatu Seminary in 1988. He served as Co-Director and Director of the London Shambhala Centre from 2004 to 2011. He works as a software engineer for Amnesty International and is married with one son.
