In Contentment in Everyday Life, meditation experience is deepened through the cultivation of contentment and simplicity.

This course provides an exploration of genuine contentment, the foundational views of the Buddhist teachings, and meditation in action for daily life. With meditation practice, we can learn to appreciate ourselves and simple human experiences, free from self-aggression. Difficult emotions and the challenges of life can be met with gentleness, steadiness, and humor.

The Way of Shambhala Curriculum is designed to be taken in conjunction with Shambhala Training levels I-V. Contentment in Everyday Life is both a companion class to Shambhala Training Level II as well as an excellent introductory course on its own.

We will gather remotely on the Zoom platform. So, please register and pay online in advance in order to receive the link for the classes.
