This weekend 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.

Prerequisite: None
Recommended: Shambhala Training I: The Art of Being Human
Please plan to attend each session of the program.

About the Way of Shambhala
The Way of Shambhala includes Shambhala Training weekends I–V, with each training followed by an "In Everyday Life" program that expands upon what was offered in the training. 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 programs that accompany Shambhala Training. It is recommended either before or after Shambhala Training I, but Meditation in Everyday Life can be taken on its own.
