We can discover confidence and contentment when we
can meet our experience with gentleness, nowness, and curiosity.
This course provides an exploration of genuine contentment, the foundational views of the Buddhist teachings, and meditation in action for daily life. The meditation practice called “shamatha” is the way to experience the teachings for ourselves and test their truth. With meditation practice, we can learn to appreciate ourselves and simple human experiences, free from self-aggression. Difficult emotions and the challenges of life can be met with gentleness, steadiness, and humor. We will explore these main topics:
Contentment and friendliness to oneself
Mindfulness in meditation and daily life
Suffering and the Four Noble Truths
Working with the emotions and Buddhist psychology
The confidence of contentment
