Way of Shambhala - Joy in Everyday Life

with Mark Hazell & Susan McConnell
April 10 / 7:00 PM - May 15 / 9:00 PM

Registration for this course is now closed.

As meditation practice expands and we develop trust in basic goodness, we can begin to discover the confidence and personal energy to go forward on the journey. Joining gentleness with discipline leads to a sense of joy. The mahayana teachings on compassion can become the inspiration for a life of bravery and freedom from doubt.

This is the third course in the “Everyday Life” series of the Way of Shambhala path of training. The course includes guided meditation, talks, and open discussion of the challenges that meditators face in their practice.

Prerequisite: None—everyone is welcome. Recommended preparation: Contentment in Everyday Life

Schedule: Five consecutive Thursdays, April 10 – May 8, 7:00 – 9:00 PM (final class date may change)

Suggested readings: See Joy in Everyday Life Reading List (PDF). The main reference books are available for purchase in the Victoria Shambhala Centre’s bookstore.

Suggested price: $85.00. Generosity Policy applies.
