Room: Rigden Shrine Room
This 5-week course provides a further exploration of mindfulness meditation, along with foundational Buddhist teachings. Cultivating contentment means difficult emotions (“grrrr!”) and the challenges of life (“You’re leaving me?”) can be met with gentleness, steadiness, and humor.

Open to the public - It is suggested that you have attended "Meditation in Everyday Life" or "Heart of Warriorship - Level I" prior to attending this class, but it is not necessary.  For more information or questions, please contact Rob Hastings at
