About the Way of Shambhala:
The Way of Shambhala is composed of Shambhala Training Levels I-V, each followed by a five-week course that expands upon what was offered in the weekend and brings the practice of meditation into everyday life.
Meditation in Everyday Life is the first of the five weekly courses that accompany the Shambhala Training levels. It is recommended either before or after Shambhala Training Level I, but Meditation in Everyday Life can be taken on its own.
Over the course of a year, the Way of Shambhala introduces the entire Shambhala path. This series offers a glimpse of the Shambhala vision of enlightened society by emphasizing the ways in which meditation can impact our daily lives, and from there, how the sanity of meditation can expand to impact our community and our whole society.
