Meditation and the Path of Contentment

Explore this recorded Shambhala Online course at your own pace.

Meditation and the Path of Contentment offers an exploration of genuine contentment through the foundational views of the Buddhist teachings.

In understanding the gentle precision of meditation practice, we can grow to appreciate ourselves and our human experiences, free from self-aggression. We learn how difficult emotions and the challenges of life can be met with gentleness, steadiness and humor.

Spirituality doesn’t exist on another level different from ordinary life.
~ Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

This course provides a good introduction for beginning meditators and is appropriate for seasoned meditators as well. Through guided meditation instruction and practice, talks, contemplation, and group discussion, we gain an understanding of unconditional contentment and start to appreciate life as it is. 

Attendees have the option of in-person or online attendance (Hybrid).  In-person attendance will be at our Burbank Center – Main Shrine Room.  Online participants will attend via Zoom.
