Mindfulness in Action: Making Friends with Yourself through Meditation and Everyday Awareness- in Portland

with Christopher St. John & Karen Monahan
September 12 / 6:30 PM - October 17 / 8:30 PM

The rewards of mindfulness practice are well proven: reduced stress, improved concentration, and an overall sense of well-being. But those benefits are just the beginning.

Mindfulness in action—mindfulness applied throughout life—can help us work more effectively with life’s challenges, expanding our appreciation and potential for creative engagement.

This class will guide participants in developing mindful awareness through meditation- providing the basics to get you started, and also to go deeper to address the questions that naturally arise as your practice matures and further insight arises.


“Mindfulness is the direct path to insight—and no one has ever illuminated that wonderful path more skillfully than Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.”—Pema Chödrön

Generosity Policy:

The Brunswick Portland Shambhala Center is funded solely by your membership and program donations. Thank you for your generosity as you consider what you can pay for each program at our Center. We strive to price our programs in a way that accurately reflects the financial need of our Center and the cost to us of producing the program.

We have a generosity policy to make our offerings available to all who wish to participate. If the program price is an obstacle for you, please consider what is possible for you in your current situation, and offer as much of the program fee as you can.

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.
