Joy in Everyday Life examines the Shambhala teachings on cheerfulness and health. Through study and practice of these teachings on discipline and the traditional Buddhist teachings of the Mahayana, we step out of the trap of our habitual patterns, free ourselves from confusion, and cultivate the noble heart of compassion. This class is a strong introduction to the Buddhist concept of bodhicitta.

Key elements of the course include meditation instructions, experiential exercises and strong community support. Course text is Pema Chodron's The Places That Scare You. Texts are available at the Center for purchase.

This program is facilitated by Elissa Kane and Damian Ubriaco and uses teaching videos of senior Shambhala Teachers.
