Joy In Everyday Life follows Contentment in Everyday Life in the Way of Shambhala class series. If you are also taking the Shambhala Training weekends, it expands the meditation experience of Shambhala Training Level III: Warrior in the World.

As meditation practice expands and we develop trust in basic goodness, we can begin to discover the confidence and personal energy to go forward on the journey. Joining gentleness with discipline leads to a sense of joy. The mahayana teachings on compassion can become the inspiration for a life of bravery and freedom from doubt.

Course attendees will meet at the Center to view the recorded class lectures, then a facilitator will lead discussions, dialogues, and meditation.

Prerequisites: Contentment in Everyday Life is recommended, and will be required along with this course to go forward with the series.
