Meditation in Everyday Life: A Thursday Evening Introductory Class

January 17 / 7:00 PM - February 28 / 9:00 PM

Meditation in Everyday Life presents peaceful abiding meditation, basic goodness, and ways that meditation practice can improve the quality of our daily life. By deepening our experience and understanding of ourselves through the practice of meditation, we more fully become who we already are.

This five-week course is open to anyone who has received Shambhala meditation instruction. Level One is not a prerequisite, although attending that weekend retreat will be helpful in understanding the material on a deeper level.

Each evening class allows for open discussion.

Meditation in Everyday Life begins a new Way of Shambhala cycle.


The Way of Shambhala series provides a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation and is composed of Shambhala Training Levels I-V, plus a five-week course following each of these levels. The series is designed to be applicable to the complexity of our daily lives. With gentleness and precision we can develop courage and sanity in these troubled times of uncertainty. This is the first of the five ‘in Everyday Life’ courses.

Over the course of a year, the Way of Shambhala introduces the entire Shambhala path. It offers a glimpse of the Shambhala vision of enlightened society by emphasizing the ways in which meditation can impact our daily lives, and from there, how the sanity of meditation can expand to impact our whole society.
