Joy In Everyday Life

with Michael Stanborough
May 8 / 7:00 PM - June 26 / 9:00 PM

Program ID# 134406;

Where do we find joy in our lives? Does it creep up on us? Do we spend much of our lives searching for it? According to the Shambhala Buddhist teachings, joy can be experienced in the most ordinary moments of life: in domesticity, work, or leisure. By cultivating the noble-heart of compassion, we open further to joy through engaging in practices that foster greater kindness toward ourselves and others in our everyday lives.


As meditation practice expands and we develop trust in basic goodness, we begin to discover the confidence and personal energy to go forward on the journey. This leads to a sense of joy and bravery. The mahayana teachings on compassion become the inspiration for a life of cheerful discipline and freedom from doubt.

The final evening of this program, 26th June, is allocated for individual meetings with a Meditation Instructor to enable recording of program completion. These are scheduled to be conducted during the evening of community meditation practice. Please avail yourself of this option, as this meeting is valuable in creating an ongoing relationship with a Meditation Instructor.  

  ** As always, we do not want financial circumstances to be a barrier to participation in what we offer; please contact Jeff at if you need to make alternative arrangements. Also, please contact Jeff if you have questions about the program.
