This course provides introductory tools and teachings for working with meditation in everyday life. With simple instructions and support, mindfulness meditation practice can become part of one's life, revealing our innate stability, strength and clarity.

This first course in the Way of Shambhala curriculum, led by Shastri Janet Solyntjes will provide an opportunity to learn and deepen one’s understanding of meditation, with practical suggestions for establishing a sitting practice in the midst of our speedy lives.

She will present the practice of peaceful abiding meditation and guidance on how to establish a meditation practice. The ways that meditation practice can improve the quality of daily life are discussed, along with the obstacles. By deepening our experience and understanding of ourselves through the practice of meditation, we more fully become who we already are. 

This course is open to all. No previous experience with meditation is required. 

This course is facilitated by Anna Veronese, Susan Singh, and Scott Spicer with talks on video by Shastri Janet Solyntjes.
