Prerequisite: Contentment in Everyday Life
Joy in Everyday Life is a 5-week course exploring the meaning of joy and the "windhorse" of personal energy and inspiration. The course introduces Mahayana Buddhist teachings, to experience how awakening our heart and extending loving-kindness to others also arouses our personal inspiration. This cheerful, perky, joy provides the inspiration and energy to go forward on the journey of compassion and warriorship.
This is the 3rd class in the Way of Shambhala curriculum (after Contentment in Everyday Life). It offers a glimpse of the Shambhala vision of an enlightened society created through mindfulness-awareness meditation, and how the stability and wisdom cultivated through this practice can expand to benefit the world around us.
Class 1: Introducing Joy
Class 2: Awakened Heart
Class 3: The Trap of Doubt
Class 4: Compassion in Action: The Paramitas
Class 5: Discipline and the Virtues of the Higher Realms
