While meditation has many proven benefits, establishing a consistent personal practice can be challenging. Our 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.

Class 1: Peaceful Abiding and Basic Goodness
Class 2: Mindfulness, Awareness and Gathering the Mind
Class 3: Obstacles and Antidotes
Class 4: Genuine Heart of Sadness and Meditation in Everyday Life

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.
