Contentment in Everyday Life
January 21 / 10:00 AM - February 18 / 12:00 PM
This five-week course is the second in the Way of Shambhala series. In this course, we deepen our meditation experience through the cultivation of contentment and simplicity. We explore the foundational views of the Buddhist teachings, and meditation in action for daily life.
Through understanding the painful conditions and emotions that keep us trapped in habitual patterns, we can open to our inherent goodness and express the qualities of gentleness, appreciation and steadiness.
Contentment in Everyday Life includes meditation instruction, talks, periods of meditation practice, discussion, and a variety of contemplative practice activities.
There are no prerequisites for this course. Everyone welcome.
