Contentment in Everyday Life provides an exploration of genuine contentment, the foundational views of the Buddhist teachings, and meditation in action for daily life. Through the gentle precision of meditation practice, we can learn to appreciate ourselves and simple human experiences, free from self-aggression. Difficult emotions and the challenges of life can be met with curiosity, steadiness, and humor.

The Way of Shambhala is composed of Shambhala Training Levels I-V, each followed by a five-week course that expands upon what was offered in the weekend and brings the practice of meditation into everyday life.
Contentment in Everyday Life is the second of the five weekly courses that accompany the Shambhala Training levels. It is recommended either before or after Shambhala Training Level II, but Contentment in Everyday Life can be taken on its own.
Over the course of a year, the Way of Shambhala introduces the entire Shambhala path. This series offers a glimpse of the Shambhala vision of enlightened society by emphasizing the ways in which meditation can impact our daily lives, and from there, how the sanity of meditation can expand to impact our community and our whole society.
