"By making a deep connection to the present moment and understanding our mind through the practice of meditation, we learn to make friends with ourselves…"

Experience what happens when we stop avoiding ourselves and the present moment and practice simply being with whatever is going on in our lives. Learn to cultivate courage and stability in the daily complexities of jobs, responsibilities, relationships, and the everyday desires, concerns and uncertainties we all face. The course is designed to provide you with the introductory tools and teachings for working with meditation in everyday life. With simple instructions and support, mindfulness meditation practice can become part of your life, bringing greater stability, strength, and clarity.

This is the first course in our core curriculum, The Way of Shambhala, which provides a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation and the Shambhala Buddhist teachings of compassion and confidence in a challenging world.

The course is weekly, interactive, communal, and creates a learning environment where the teachings are intimate and relevant. We train in meditation, and use inquiry, dialogue, and contemplative arts throughout the class.
