Meditation in Everyday Life

with Christie Cashman
September 12 / 7:00 PM - October 10 / 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. No prerequisite.

Please plan on attending each session of the program. The first and last classes are especially important.

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

Acharya Christie Cashman
began studying the Shambhala Buddhist teachings in 1971. She teaches a full range of courses—from introductory meditation intensives at Naropa University to Vajrayana sadhana classes and Shambhala Training levels. For many years, her life has revolved around monthlong meditation retreats and intensive study. Acharya Cashman served as the international executive director of Shambhala Training from 1999 to 2003.


The Way of Shambhala series provides a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation and is composed of Shambhala Training Levels I-V, plus an optional five-week 'In Everyday Life' course. 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.

The Shambhala Training Levels I-V and the Everyday Life classes can also each be taken as a stand alone series.

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.
