Way of Shambhala - Contentment in Everyday Life
with Susan McConnell & Cameron Crofton
This course provides an exploration of genuine contentment, the foundational views of the Buddhist teachings, and meditation in action for daily life. With 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 gentleness, steadiness, and humor.
This is the second course in the “Everyday Life” series of the Way of Shambhala path of training. The course includes guided meditation, talks, and open discussion of the challenges that meditators face in their practice.
Prerequisite: None—everyone is welcome. (Note: Contentment in Everyday Life is recommended preparation for the next course in the series, Joy in Everyday Life.)
Dates and times: Five consecutive Thursdays, September 25 – October 23, 7:00 – 9:00 PM
Suggested readings: See Contentment in Everyday Life Reading List (PDF). The main reference books are available for purchase in the Victoria Shambhala Centre’s bookstore.
