Contentment in Everyday Life


with Christine Wetzl & Billy Boyar
January 9 / 7:00 PM - February 20 / 9:00 PM

Contentment in Everyday Life:


The Contentment in Everyday Life course is a thorough exploration of mindfulness meditation, delving into the foundational views of the Hinayana Buddhist teachings, and meditation in action for daily life. By acknowledging and understanding the reality of suffering we can open to our inherent goodness and express the qualities of gentleness, appreciation, and fearlessness in our everyday lives.


Pre-requisite - None required: Ideal for all newer students wishing to explore the Shambhala Buddhist path.  Recommended especially for those who have completed Shambhala Training Level II.   Will be a requirement for those students desiring to attend future "In Everyday Life" classes, the Sacred Path Training Series, Warrior's Assembly and Seminary further down the line.


Texts: Readings will be recommended from the following texts, which are available in our library or can be purchased at local or online book stores. These readings will supplement your learning but are not required.
