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.

Class Topics

Class 1:  Introducing Contentment
Class 2:  Contemplating Contentment
Class 3:  Suffering and the Four Noble Truths
Class 4:  Working with Emotions & Buddhist Psychology
Class 5:  The Confidence of Contentment

Please plan on attending each session of the program. The first and last classes are especially important.

He has lived in Thailand for 14 years, where he runs an export business selling meditation and yoga products. He has two sons, and in his spare time he enjoys practicing yoga, dancing, & cycling. 

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.

The Way of Shambhala cirriculum introduces the Shambhala path. The "In Everyday Life" 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.
