Contentment in Everyday Life


with Robert Reichner & Janet Bass
November 4 / 6:30 PM - December 9 / 9:00 PM

This course provides an exploration of genuine contentment, the foundational views of the Buddhist teachings, and meditation in action for daily life. With meditation practice, we can learn to appreciate ourselves and simple human experiences, free from self-aggression. Difficult emotions and the challenges of life can be met with gentleness, steadiness, and humor.


This is the second course of the Way of Shambhala path of training. The course includes guided meditation, talks, and open discussion of the challenges that meditators face in their practice. It pairs well with the weekend retreat Way of Shambhala: Level II Birth of the Warrior .


Prerequisites: This program is open to everyone. No previous experience with meditation is necessary.
