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 renowned four-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.

This is the first class in the Way of Shambhala curriculum. It offers a glimpse of the Shambhala vision of an enlightened society created through mindfulness-awareness meditation. The stability and wisdom cultivated through meditation practice can expand to benefit the world around us.
