Meditation in Everyday Life
with Jesse Miller
September 12 / 5:30 PM - October 10 / 7:30 PM
The Way of Shambhala is a series of classes designed to awaken us to the potential of our lives. It teaches us to live meaningfully with joy; to deepen our intelligence and compassion, and to learn to unify the practical and the profound. Daily life becomes an opportunity to further cultivate these qualities.
Meditation in Everyday Life, the first class in The Way of Shambhala series, is open to everyone and introduces students to a deeper experience of peaceful abiding as the foundation for their path, offering practical suggestions for developing a meditation practice at home. We will explore, through talks and discussion, the connection between mindfulness and physical and emotional health, as well as beginning to see the relationship between meditation, daily life, and creating enlightened society. There will also be an opportunity to discuss the challenges students face in their individual meditation practice.
This class will be taught live, online by Jesse Miller from Berkeley, CA, specifically for us in Juneau. We will be able to interact with Jesse each week, asking questions and discussing.
We will offer light snacks and tea at 5:00 each week and the class will begin at 5:15, ending at 7:15pm.
Each class (beginning with Class Two) includes suggested readings from both Sakyong Mipham's Turning the Mind into an Ally as well as Chogyam Trungpa's Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior.
