We are often looking for satisfaction and contentment outside of ourselves. But when we get what we want, somehow it's not enough and we're off chasing the next thing that we think will bring us happiness and peace. However true contentment is always right here, right now -- if we could just learn to relax and tune into it.

We will offer Contentment in Everyday Life as a weekend intensive that offers an experiential training in contentment, as well as an exploration of the obstacles or challenges to experiencing simplicity, gentleness and mindfulness in everyday life. The course responds with practical answers to the question "How can I bring the contentment of meditation into my everyday life?"

Through talks, guided meditation, contemplation, and discussion, we gain understanding of unconditional contentment and explore the obstacles to experiencing simplicity and nowness. This course is beneficial to new and experienced meditators alike.
