Contentment in Everyday Life


with Didier Gohler
October 22 / 7:00 PM - November 19 / 8:30 PM

Contentment is hard to find. We usually think contentment is found in things, achievements or experiences. With meditation practice, we learn to appreciate ourselves and simple human experiences. In this Way of Shambhala course we begin to understand why experience is often habitual and full of discontent and suffering. And most importantly, we learn how difficult emotions and the challenges of life can be met with gentleness, steadiness and humor.

This course includes meditation instruction, talks, periods of meditation practice, discussion, and a variety of contemplative practice activities. A range of learning aids are used, including simple instructions, experiential exercises and strong community support.


The only prerequisite is having previously received Shambhala Meditation Instruction.


Note: Contentment In Everyday Life is a prerequisite for all subsequent Way of Shambhala weeknight classes.



People who have taken this class previously can retake it for half-price.

Our generosity policy invites everyone to attend by making the contribution that they can afford.
