Contentment in Everyday Life
September 8 • 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This is a 5 week class beginning Sat September 8th: 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Contentment is hard to find. We usually think contentment is found in things, achievements or experiences. With meditation practice, we learn to appreciate ourselves and simple human experiences. In this Way of Shambhala course we begin to understand why experience is often habitual and full of discontent and suffering. And most importantly, we learn how difficult emotions and the challenges of life can be met with gentleness, steadiness and humor.
This course includes meditation instruction, talks, periods of meditation practice, discussion, and a variety of contemplative practice activities. A range of learning aids are used, including simple instructions, experiential exercises and strong community support.
