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. Further, this program 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. This view is based upon the teachings of meditation in Turning the Mind Into an Ally and Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior

This is the first course in our core program, The Way of Shambhala, which provides a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation. This series is designed to be applied to the complexity of our daily lives, and to develop courage and sanity in these troubled times of uncertainty. The Way of Shambhala series offers a structured path of meditation and an introduction to all that Shambhala offers. It also 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 whole society. 

We would greatly appreciate your registering online before the class, so that we can anticipate class size for material preparation and so the Coordinator can email you before the first class with additional information about the first class meeting.
