Meditation is not a matter of withdrawing - you are not drawing in, retreating from the world. In fact, you are getting into the world. ~ Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche


We all hope that work, sex, and money will be a source of fulfillment and pleasure. Yet they are also sources of problems for which we seek practical advice and solutions. Work, sex, and money are just as much a part of our spiritual life as they are a part of our everyday existence.

This workshop is based on original teachings by Shambhala founder Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche in the Fall of 1970, soon after his arrival in the West. Join Senior Teacher Joseph Mauricio for this exploration of Trungpa Rinpoche's vision of unifying the dharma and everyday life - as fresh and timely now as it was in 1970.

This workshop will include talks, discussion, meditation instruction and practice.

Open to all levels!

Joseph Mauricio, a senior teacher in the Shambhala Buddhist Tradition, is a student of Meditation Master Sakyong Mipham, Rinpoche. He is a writer, lecturer and, as founder of LIFEWORK Personal Coaching Services, a meditation, performance, public speaking and personal actualization coach.   

Joseph currently lives in Baltimore where he serves as the director of the Baltimore Shambhala Meditation Center.

Teachings will be drawn from the book Work, Sex, Money: Real Life on the Path of Mindfulness, by Chögyam Trungpa. This book is strongly suggested advance reading if possible (copies are available in the Shambhala Center bookstore)
