This course provides introductory tools and teachings to weave the insights of meditation into daily life. With simple instructions and support, meditation practice can become an integral part of our lives, increasing our stability, strength, and clarity. In this way, we can improve the quality of daily life and deepen our experience of ourselves. The class includes readings from the book Turning the Mind into an Ally by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. Purchasing this book is optional.

About the Way of Shambhala
The Way of Shambhala includes Shambhala Training Weekends I–V, with each weekend followed by an "In Everyday Life" course that expands upon what was offered in the weekend. Over the course of a year, these programs introduce the entire Shambhala path. This series offers a glimpse of the Shambhala vision of enlightened society by emphasizing how meditation can impact our daily lives—and from there, how the sanity of meditation can impact our community and our whole society. Please click here for a full description and chart of the Way of Shambhala.

Meditation in Everyday Life is the first of the five courses that accompany the Shambhala Training weekends. It is recommended either before or after Shambhala Training Weekend I, but Meditation in Everyday Life can be taken on its own.
