Meditation in Everyday Life


with Michael Ratener
October 1 / 7:00 PM - October 29 / 9:00 PM

New and experienced meditators are warmly invited to this class


The five week class explores the view and practice of sitting meditation as it applies to our daily lives. The evening class allows students a deeper experience of peaceful abiding as the foundation for their path and offers practical suggestions for developing a meditation practice at home.


It provides continuity between Shambhala Training Levels I and II and offers a community in which to discuss and clarify basic sitting meditation. The class will study the principles of meditation as presented in the books Turning the Mind into an Ally by Sakyong Miphamand Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior by Chogyam Trungpa.


We recomend  you have access to both books for readings for the class, but especially Turning the Mind into an Ally.
