Contentment in Everyday Life provides an exploration of genuine contentment, the foundational views of the Buddhist teachings, and meditation in action for daily life.
Through the gentle precision of meditation practice, we can learn to appreciate ourselves and simple human experiences, free from self-aggression. Difficult emotions and the challenges of life can be met with curiosity, steadiness, and humor.
Each class includes a guided meditation and/or contemplation, a short talk or teaching, and time for a discussion about how the material relates to daily life.
Saturday November 10th, 17th, 24th, *December 8th & 15th, from 2:00-4:00 p.m. (* Please note that there's no class on Dec. 1st).
Recommended: Meditation in Everyday Life; Shambhala Training Levels I, II.
Please plan on attending each session of the program. The first and last classes are especially important.
The fee for the classes is 1000 Baht per person, which includes the reading/study material.
About the Way of Shambhala:
The Way of Shambhala is composed of Shambhala Training Levels I-V, each followed by a five-week course that expands upon what was offered in the weekend and brings the practice of meditation into everyday life.
Contentment in Everyday Life is the second of the five weekly courses that accompany the Shambhala Training levels. It is recommended either before or after Shambhala Training Level II, but Contentment in Everyday Life can be taken on its own.
Over the course of a year, the Way of Shambhala introduces the entire Shambhala path. This series offers a glimpse of the Shambhala vision of enlightened society by emphasizing the ways in which meditation can impact our daily lives, and from there, how the sanity of meditation can expand to impact our community and our whole society.

Please plan on attending each session of the program if you sign up. You will be asked to make a non-refundable deposit of 250 Baht to confirm your reservation, which will be used to prepare the course materials so you have it when we begin. If you don't register in advance, you may still attend the first class, but you will not be able to receive the reading materials until the 2nd week, so you'll have to catch up on the reading/study material.
