Contentment in Everyday Life
with Larry Higgins & David Maynard
February 2 / 7:00 PM - March 2 / 9:00 PM
Contentment can be hard to find. Much of the time we search for contentment in things, achievements or relationships. Contentment in Everyday Life provides an exploration of genuine contentment, the foundational views of the Buddhist Hinayana teachings, and meditation in action for daily life. Through the gentle precision of meditation practice, we can learn to appreciate ourselves and our simple human experiences, free from self-aggression. Difficult emotions and the challenges of life can be met with curiosity, steadiness and humor.
No prerequisites: Contentment in Everyday Life is an entry level program and issues a prerequisite for taking all subsequent Everyday Life classes, beginning with Joy in Everyday Life.
