Meditation In Everyday Life


By making a deep connection to the present moment and understanding our mind through the practice of meditation, we learn to make friends with ourselves…

While meditation has many proven benefits, establishing a consistent personal practice can be challenging. Our renowned four-week training course Meditation in Everyday Life is designed to help new meditators learn the basics of Mindfulness Meditation practice and bring the benefits to their daily lives.

Through establishing a consistent meditation practice, we learn to relax and simply be with whatever is going on in our lives. Over time, this meditation helps us to cultivate courage, humor, and stability in the face of the daily complexities we all experience – our jobs, relationships, and all aspects of daily life.

Meditation in Everyday Life combines technique and view in a setting of support and community to provide you with all the tools you need to establish a strong and consistent meditation practice.

Hour-long classes cover the following ground:

Class 1: Posture & Worthiness – Foundations of Meditation
Class 2: Breath & Being – Feeling our Emotions
Class 3: Obstacles & Antidotes – Working With Thoughts
Class 4: Bringing It All Together & Going Out into the World

As a theme throughout the course, we’ll explore the Shambhala view that creating stability and gentleness in our minds can expand outward to our friends, family, neighbors, and to society as a whole.

Meditation in Everyday Life begins the first Thursday evening of every month and the first Tuesday afternoon of every month. Give yourself the gift of meditation and infuse your life and the lives of those around you with compassion, caring and kindness.

Meditation in Everyday Life is the first class in the Shambhala Training curriculum. The Shambhala Training path is a secular course of practice and study which consists of weekly classes and weekend retreats suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators, and open to people of any spiritual tradition. This comprehensive overview of mindfulness meditation and contemplative living practices presents the profound, simple and incredibly relevant view that when we foster a more awake and compassionate relationship with ourselves and with others, we are creating a more awake and compassionate world.
