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.

The course consists of 5 weekly classes to cover the following ground. Registration for this course is open now through the second class.   

April 7, Class 1: Peaceful Abiding and Basic Goodness
April 21, Class 2: Mindfulness, Awareness and Gathering the Mind
May 5, Class 3: Obstacles & Antidotes – Working With Thoughts
May 19, Class 4: Genuine Heart of Sadness
June 2, Class 5: Everyday Life and Enlightened Society

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.

Give yourself the gift of meditation and infuse your life and the lives of those around you with compassion, caring and kindness.
