A 5-week Interactive Course

 

Contentment can be hard to find. Much of the time we search for contentment in things, achievements or relationships. With meditation and contemplation practice, we can relax with ourselves as we are and appreciate simple human experience. Difficult emotions and the challenges of life can be met with gentleness, mindfulness and inquisitiveness.

Meditation experience is deepened through the cultivation of contentment and simplicity. We explore the foundational views of the hinayana Buddhist teachings and meditation in action for daily life. Through understanding the painful conditions and emotions that keep us trapped in habitual patterns, we can open to our inherent goodness and express the qualities of the Tiger: gentleness, appreciation, and steadiness.


This second course in the Way of Shambhala curriculum, led by Acharya Eve Rosenthal  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

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