Wisdom in Everyday Life

with Jonathan Barbieri
February 26 / 6:30 PM - March 26 / 9:00 PM

Our pay what you can afford policy applies for this class. Please see below for details.

Wisdom in Everyday Life Course
Meditation sharpens our intelligence and uncovers our wisdom. Participants will receive practical instructions for discovering trust and magic, even in the midst of challenge.  No longer deterred or depressed by obstacles, we can include everything as part of the path. The challenges of daily life become opportunities for both contemplative practice and social and ecological action.

Prerequisite: FEARLESSNESS in EVERYDAY LIFE course. The Way of Shambhala curriculum builds on experiences through the levels and the courses. It is also highly recommended, but not required, to have taken the companion courses Shambhala Training Levels I-V before attending WISDOM in Everyday Life.

Shastri Jonathan Barbieri is a senior teacher in the Shambhala Lineage who has taught Buddhist and Shambhala trainings extensively   throughout North America for over 30 years. Jon has been engaged in several livelihood pursuits including consulting with cities and counties on   workforce development, creating contemplative co-housing communities, and, most recently, teaching Mindfulness programs to public agencies and businesses. He was formerly the Executive Director of Shambhala Mountain Center.


We wish to strongly encourage you to register for programs when you know or are fairly certain you wish to take the program. Quite often, we are uncertain whether or not there are enough participants registered to enable us to run a program; preparing for a class but not knowing whether or not that class will run puts staff (teachers, coordinators, and aides) in a difficult position. Early registration is appreciated and is of benefit to both staff and fellow participants. Please register for programs no later than 7 days before the program/class begins.

Pay what you can afford
In order to make our programs accessible to everyone, we have a “Pay as much as you can afford” policy. If you are able, we ask that you pay a minimum of 50% of the program fee in order to cover related program costs.  Write in the amount in the "Notes" section when you register online.  If you have any questions, please contact the registrar by email at [email protected] .

For those who can offer more than the program price, we have a “Patron Price.” Your generosity in offering the patron price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price.
