Contentment in Everyday Life (Online)


Contentment can be hard to find. Much of the time we search for contentment in things, achievements or relationships. With meditation and contemplation practice, we can relax with ourselves as we are and appreciate simple human experience. Difficult emotions and the challenges of life can be met with gentleness, mindfulness and inquisitiveness.

Join us for this online course offered through Shambhala Online. We will watch the videorecordings of talks given by Eve Rosenthal, a senior teacher in Shambhala. Dave Garton will be our local online discussion leader.

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 emotions and Buddhist psychology
  • The confidence of contentment

This five-week course is open to all. No previous experience with meditation is required.

Contentment in Everyday Life is part of a five-course series 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.
