Way of Shambhala I: Joy in Everyday Life (At our new Westside Center!)
with John Beard & Marilyn Moore
Prerequisites: Contentment in Everyday Life (CIEL). It is also highly recommended that students have taken Shambhala Training Level Three.
We often approach our lives with the idea that joy comes from the fulfillment of our personal desires. Through an exploration of the Buddhist teachings on intelligent compassion towards others, we begin to discover the confidence and inspiration for a life of cheerful discipline, health and bravery.
This is the third class in our core curriculum (http://la.shambhala.org/what-we-offer/the-way-of-shambhala/). The class includes meditation instruction, talks, periods of meditation practice, discussion, and a variety of contemplative practice activities.
John Beard is a long-time student of the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. He has served in various leadership roles in the Los Angeles Shambhala mandala and is retired from a 40 year career in human resources management.
Marilyn Moore is a student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. She has served as the Shambhala Center Director and is currently the Head of Practice, in addition to her role as co-leader of the SMCLA satellite center in Orange County.
Please refrain from wearing perfume, cologne, or scented products to the LA Shambhala Center as some of our participants have severe scent-related allergies.
