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