Wisdom in Everyday Life
April 10 / 6:30 PM - May 8 / 9:00 PM
Wisdom in Everyday Life looks at the qualities of a master warrior whose vastness of mind and kindness are fully manifested in the world.
The master warrior is no longer deterred or depressed by obstacles, but with tremendous forward vision and strength, playfully includes everything as part of the path. In this way, the warrior is able to skillfully benefit the world.
Participants are introduced to the vajrayana teachings of Buddhism, which reveal the sacredness of the phenomenal world. Students will receive essential instructions for transforming confused emotions and situations into wisdom as they arise.
There is a materials fee of $15 for a text that accompanies this course.

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.
Wisdom in Everyday Life is the last of the five weekly courses that accompany the Shambhala Training levels. It is recommended either before or after Shambhala Training Level V.
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.
