Meditation In Every Day Life


with Jesse Miller
June 2 / 9:30 AM - July 28 / 11:30 AM

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.


We are delighted to be able to Skype in senior Shambhala teacher Jesse Miller. Jesse was a student of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and is now a student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. He has taught extensively with Ani Pema Chodron.
