Contentment in Everyday Life (Eagle Rock)


with Guy Blume & Marilyn Moore
January 29 / 7:30 PM - February 26 / 9:30 PM

Contentment is hard to find.  We usually think contentment is found in things, achievements or experiences.  With meditation practice, we learn to appreciate ourselves and simple human experiences.  In this Way of Shambhala course we begin to understand why experience is often habitual and full of discontent and suffering.  And most importantly, we learn how difficult emotions and the challenges of life can be met with gentleness, steadiness and humor.

This is a public class open to all, but is especially recommended for people who have taken Shambhala Training Level Two. This is the second class in our core curriculum Way of Shambhala - but it may also be taken independently.  The class includes meditation instructions, talks, periods of meditation practice, discussion, and a variety of contemplative practice activities.  A range of learning aids are used, including simple instructions, experiential exercises and strong community support.


Marilyn Moore is a student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. She has served as the Shambhala Center Director and is currently the Head of Practice.


Guy Blume has been a Buddhist practitioner for 20 years. He is a meditation instructor at the Shambhala Meditation Center Los Angeles and a Kado practitioner. In his other life he is an interior designer.


Please refrain from wearing perfume, cologne, or scented products to the LA Shambhala Center as some of our participants have severe scent-related allergies.
