By making a deep connection to understanding
our state of mind through the practice of meditation,
we learn to relax and strengthen our state of being.

While meditation has many proven benefits, establishing a consistent personal practice can be challenging. Meditation in Everyday Life is designed to help new meditators learn the foundation 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, 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. We will explore these main topics:

Training in how to gather the mind

Understanding natural mindfulness

Developing confidence in meditation practice

How to work with obstacles in meditation

Training in stability, clarity and openness

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 society as a whole.

This program is open to all!

Meditation in Everyday Life is the first class in the Shambhala Training curriculum. The Shambhala Training path is a 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.
