Meditation in Everyday Life: A Five-Week Course
February 11 / 7:00 PM - March 11 / 9:00 PM
The Meditation in Everyday Life course is designed to provide you with the introductory tools and teachings for working with meditation in everyday life.
With simple instructions and support, mindfulness meditation practice can become part of your lives, bringing greater stability, strength, and clarity.
This is the first course in our core curriculum, The Way of Shambhala, which provides a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation and the Shambhala Buddhist teachings of compassion and confidence in a challenging world.
The courses are weekly, interactive, communal, and create a learning environment where the teachings are intimate and relevant. We train in meditation, and use inquiry, dialogue, and contemplative arts throughout the classes.
