Contentment can be hard to find. Much of the time we search for contentment in things, achievements or relationships. With meditation practice, we relax with ourselves and appreciate simple human experiences. This retreat builds on the discovery of basic goodness and introduces the foundational teachings of Buddhism.
The Way of Shambhala is a practice and study path that presents the Shambhala Buddhist teachings and explores how we can apply them in everyday life. "Contentment in Everyday Life" introduces the foundational Shambhala and Buddhist teachings, and provide an opportunity to explore these teachings in depth in a meditative environment.
This program runs 3 Sunday afternoons from 2-5 pm.
"Suffering is a result of roaming, the urge to keep looking for an external source of happiness. Much of our stress these days is caused by simple lack of contentment."
