(Eagle Rock) WAY OF SHAMBHALA: Contentment in Everyday Life
with Shastri Joel Wachbrit & Debra Dysart
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 is a public class open to all, but is especially recommended for people who have taken Shambhala Training Level Two. This is the second class in our core curriculum Way of Shambhala - but it may also be taken independently. The class includes meditation instructions, 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.
