Program Details


August 25 / 12:00 PM - September 29 / 6:00 PM


 August 25 - September 29, 2013

 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.

 This online learning program takes place over a five week period, August 25 - September 29, 2013.  Each week you will watch a prerecorded talk by a Shambhala senior teacher or Acharya, read some brief supplementary texts, practice any assigned contemplations or exercises, and connect with your assigned study partner to discuss your view of the teaching.  We will then gather together as a group on Sunday, September 29.  We will sit together, watch the final talk (#5), discuss that talk and the WIEL teachings as a whole, and share some tea and snacks.

 The cost for this program is $85, payable to Shambhala Online.  Their generosity policy allows you to pay more or less, depending or your circumstances.  You will need access to a computer with a high-speed internet connection to play the streaming videos.  They utilize Adobe Flash Player software, which is not supported on some Apple devices (such as iPhones and iPads).  Contact the Program Coordinator, Arel Good (, 317-840-8393) if you have any questions or problems.
