Way of Shambhala: Meditation in Everyday Life

with Celeste Budwit-Hunter
March 9 / 10:00 AM - April 6 / 12:00 PM

Repeat Cost $55


By making a deep connection to the present moment and understanding our mind through the practice of meditation, we learn to make friends with ourselves.


Meditation in Everyday Life is a 5-week course that teaches mindfulness meditation and shows us how this practice can improve our daily lives in the most practical sense. We experience what happens when we stop avoiding ourselves and the present moment and practice simply being with whatever is going on in our lives. We learn to cultivate courage and stability in the daily complexities of jobs, responsibilities, relationships, and the everyday desires, concerns and uncertainties we all face. This is the 1st class in the Way of Shambhala curriculum. It offers a glimpse of the Shambhala vision of an enlightened society created through mindfulness-awareness meditation. And how the stability and wisdom cultivated through this practice can expand to benefit the world around us.
*In addition to the program fee, there are two recommended books we invite you to purchase for the class if you are able: 

  • Turning the Mind Into An Ally, by Sakyong Mipham

  • Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior, by Chögyam Trungpa
