Meditation in Everyday Life

with Lauren Newton & Melinda Rothouse
August 5 / 7:00 PM - September 2 / 9:00 PM

Registration at 6:30 PM on August 5th.

Meditation in Everyday Life provides an opportunity to deepen the experience and understanding of meditation for new students, with special attention on practical suggestions for establishing a sitting practice in the midst of our speedy society. Each evening class allows for open discussion of the challenges that students are facing in their practice.

Further, this series of classes offers a glimpse of the Shambhala vision of enlightened society by emphasizing the ways in which meditation can impact our daily lives, and can expand to impact our whole society.

Turning the Mind into an Ally by Sakyong Mipham, Rinpoche, is the recommended text for this course, and we will also be using readings from Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior by Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche. These texts 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.

Class Tuition:  $110.00.
