Friday Nov 3 from 9:00 am to 5:00 and Nov 4 from 9:00 to 1:00 pm

Meditation sharpens our intelligence and uncovers our wisdom. When we touch the world directly, we discover ordinary magic. No longer deterred or depressed by obstacles, we can include everything as part of the path and play with whatever arises. The challenges and richness of daily life become opportunities for both contemplative practice and social and ecological action.

Prerequisite for this Course

Fearlessness in Everyday Life. Shambhala Training Levels I-IV recommended but not required.

We will use the Way of Shambhala online resources primarily for the recorded talks, and a local facilitator will convene the classes that include:

  • Viewing the talk;
  • Using dialogue to explore individuals' understanding;
  • Engaging in discussion about the topics.
