Meditation In Everyday Life

 

 

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…

This pandemic has givens the opportunity to explore ourselves, and our reactions to this new, changing world in which we are living.  We've had to grapple with sudden change, uncertainty, and fear in our daily lives. Meditation has many proven benefits for working with our minds and emotions...yet, establishing a consistent personal practice can be challenging. Our five week training course Meditation in Everyday Life is designed to help new meditators learn the basics of Mindfulness Meditation practice. Through establishing a consistent meditation practice, we learn to relax and simply be with whatever is going on in our lives. Over time, this meditation helps us to cultivate courage, humor, and stability in the face of the daily complexities we all typically experience – our jobs, relationships--and especially in this time of great upheaval and uncertainty.

Meditation in Everyday Life combines technique and view in a setting of support and community to provide you with all the tools you need to establish a strong and consistent meditation practice.

Two hour-long classes cover the following topics:

Class 1: Posture & Worthiness - Foundations of Meditation

Class 2: Breath & Being - Feeling our Emotions

Class 3: Obstacles & Antidotes - Working with Thoughts

Class 4: Working with our Human Heart

Class 5: Expanding outward into Society

 

Meditation in Everyday Life begins Monday, June 15th from 6:30-8:30 pm. Give yourself the gift of meditation and infuse your life and the lives of those around you with compassion, caring and kindness. This program will be offered online.  A ZOOM link will be sent to registrants.


Meditation in Everyday Life is the first class in the Shambhala Training curriculum. The Shambhala Training path is a secular course of practice and study which consists of weekly classes and weekend retreats suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators, and open to people of any spiritual tradition. This comprehensive overview of mindfulness meditation and contemplative living practices presents the profound, simple and incredibly relevant view that when we foster a more awake and compassionate relationship with ourselves and with others, we are creating a more awake and compassionate world.
