Way of Shambhala 1 - Meditation in Everyday Life


with Katherine McGeean & Susan Boychuk
October 3 / 7:00 PM - October 24 / 9:00 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, discussion groups and individual interviews 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.


The Way of Shambhala I is our core practice and education program. It includes five Shambhala Training weekend programs (Levels I through V), and five companion 5-week classes (Meditation in Everyday Life through Wisdom in Everyday Life). You are encouraged to do both together, but it is possible to do just the weekends in order, or just the classes in order. To proceed beyond WoS I, all weekends and week night classes are required.


No prerequisite.
