Meditation in Everyday Life
with Craig Mollins & Peter Seidler
March 9 / 5:30 PM - March 9 / 7:15 PM
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.
The Way of Shambhala cirriculum offers a structured path of meditation and a complete introduction to the foundations of Shambhala Buddhism. Suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators, and open to people of any spiritual tradition, this series of classes provide a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation practice, wisdom teachings, and physical practices rooted in the ancient traditions of Shambhala and Tibetan Buddhism. Students will also be introduced to contemplative disciplines that make the journey experiential—touching our emotions, our intelligence, our creativity, and the practical details of daily life in modern society. The programmes are presented by experienced Shambhala teachers under the guidance of the Shambhala lineage-holder, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.
The Meditation in Everyday Life module is open to the public, and is required before taking the next module, Contentment in Everyday Life (dates to be announced). Students will be asked to make a donation in lieu of a set fee for the classes. Please register by clicking on the link below.
