Meditation In Everyday Life

 

By making a deep connection to the present moment and understanding our mind through the practice of meditation, we learn to make friends with ourselves…

 

While meditation has many proven benefits, establishing a consistent personal practice can be challenging. Our five-week training course Meditation in Everyday Life is designed to help new meditators learn the basics of Mindfulness Meditation practice and bring the benefits to their daily lives.

Through establishing a consistent meditation practice, we learn to relax and simply be with whatever is going on in our lives. Over time, this meditation helps us to cultivate courage, humor, and stability in the face of the daily complexities we all experience – our jobs, relationships, and all aspects of daily life.

Meditation in Everyday Life combines technique and view in a setting of support and community to provide you with all the tools you need to establish a strong and consistent meditation practice.

This class covers the following ground:

-Posture & Worthiness – Foundations of Meditation
-Breath & Being – Feeling our Emotions
-Obstacles & Antidotes – Working With Thoughts
-Bringing It All Together & Going Out into the World

As a theme throughout the course, we’ll explore the Shambhala view that creating stability and gentleness in our minds can expand outward to our friends, family, neighbors, and to society as a whole.


Meditation in Everyday Life is the first class in the Shambhala Training Program.  The Shambhala Training path is a secular course of practice and study which consists of weekly classes and weekend retreats suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators, and open to people of any spiritual tradition. This comprehensive overview of mindfulness meditation and contemplative living practices presents the profound, simple and incredibly relevant view that when we foster a more awake and compassionate relationship with ourselves and with others, we are creating a more awake and compassionate world.
