    Room: EAGLE ROCK SHAMBHALA- Main Shrine Room

    We’ve got our meditation instruction, we've made the aspiration to have a daily practice but how do we actually pull that off?  Just 10 minutes a day... sounds easy but it's harder than we think. We can have the greatest aspiration in the world but without having a clear ground of motivation our aspiration stays in the heavens unrealized.  Join us as we talk about how to establish and maintain a daily sitting practice by starting with the ground of motivation.
