(Jan) Wisdom in Everyday Life


with Ethan Nichtern
January 2 / 7:00 PM - January 30 / 9:00 PM

Prerequisite: Fearlessness in Everyday Life


 


Meditation sharpens our intelligence and uncovers our wisdom. Students will receive practical instructions for transforming confused emotions and situations into effective actions as they arise. No longer deterred or depressed by obstacles, we can include everything as part of the path. The challenges of daily life become opportunities for both contemplative practice and social action.


 


*Wisdom in Everyday Life is designed as a companion course to Shambhala Training Level V, thus completion of Level V before or after the course is highly recommended (though not required)*
