Contentment is hard to find. We usually think contentment is found in things, achievements or experiences, but what if it was available any moment, in our ability to relax and appreciate.
Contentment in Everyday Life is a 5-week course offering an experiential training in contentment, as well as an exploration of the obstacles or challenges to experiencing simplicity, gentleness and mindfulness in everyday life. The course responds with practical suggestions to the question "How can I bring the contentment of meditation into my everyday life?"
This is an introductory class in the Way of Shambhala curriculum. It offers a glimpse of the Shambhala vision of an enlightened society created through mindfulness-awareness meditation, and how the stability and wisdom cultivated through this practice can expand to benefit the world around us.
Each class includes meditation and/or contemplation, some social element, a presentation, and time for a discussion of how the material relates to our personal life.
Please plan on attending each session of the program.
No prerequisite: This course is open to all.
